Our specialist nurses are dedicated to promoting a safe environment for patients, staff and visitors. 

The team acts as a source of expert advice within the Trust on all aspects of the prevention and control of infection.

We are supported by two consultant microbiologists/infection control doctors and a small administrative team. We work across both Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, and can be contacted via the two hospital switchboards.

The Trust also has a nursing team that participates in Public Health England's surgical site infection and surveillance scheme for cardiac and coronary artery bypass graft surgery. They also conduct local surveillance on implant device infection rates.
