MRSA numbers continue to decrease

MRSA numbers continue to decrease

FOR THE first time since mandatory surveillance began in 2001, MRSA bloodstream infections across the NHS have been sustained at under 100 reported cases per month for the last six months.

MRSA numbers are continuing to decrease, with 86 bloodstream infections reported across the NHS in November 2011. On average there is now less than one MRSA infection per primary care trust (PCT) each month. Some 35 NHS organisations had been free from MRSA bloodstream infections for 12 months in November 2011 according to Health Protection Agency (HPA) data.

To build on this progress, new ambitions have been set for the NHS which, if delivered, would see a further 29% reduction in MRSA bloodstream infections and an 18% reduction in Clostridium difficile infections by April 2013 - bringing annual numbers of MRSA bloodstream infections down to 880 and reducing C.difficile infections from 19,754 to 16,100.
