MRSA: Screening

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 2 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what progress has been made towards meeting his Department’s 2011 deadline for the screening of non-elective patients for MRSA; (302675)

(2) how many primary care trusts have started to screen non-elective patients for MRSA in advance of his Department’s 2011 deadline for such screening.

This information is not collected centrally. It is the responsibility of primary care trust commissioners of national health service services to put in place processes for assuring themselves that trusts are meeting this commitment.
