Surgical site infections (SSI)

The Surveillance team is committed to working in collaborative partnerships with Trusts, hospitals and key stakeholders to reduce the risk of surgical site infection (SSI).

Monitoring of SSIs is important for patient health (prevention and early intervention) and cost containment associated with hospital stay and treatments.

The integration of SSI surveillance with strategic planning and continuous quality improvement systems aims to facilitate infection prevention within hospitals.
