Data from latest Surgical Site Infection survey ready to be shared
Data gathered during the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) Surgical Site Infection 2019 survey has now been distributed to any trusts who expressed a wish to receive their data packs.
For trusts that asked for a delay due to COVID-19 work, GIRFT will be issuing the packs at a later date. The project team is not expecting a formal reply until hospitals are able to fully share the relevant data with their participating specialty department.
Participants from more than 100 NHS sites and more than 50 independent sector sites contributed to the 2019 data collection, before the SSI survey portal closed in December.
An SSI national report will follow, with recommendations to help inform clinical practice. For further information regarding the survey, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
