Diary of a Sutton Councillor

Thursday 5th June 7.30pm

Health & Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee

Main items on the agenda were Hospital Acquired Infections with a presentation from a representative of Mayday Hospital to provide comparative figures of MRSA & C Difficile incidences and to discuss their approach to tackling these problems. Mayday had managed to reduce their incidences of MRSA by 50% and provided us with a copy of their action plan. The committee agreed that we now had sufficient evidence to prepare a report on the topic with recommendations.


We were advised of the progress of moving patients from Orchard Hill and the committee requested that an update on progress to come to the September committee.


There was some discussion around the issues of aggressive incidences towards Adult Social Services staff and what procedures were in place to ensure the health & safety of staff. The committee agreed to look into this topic in more detail.
