Surgical Site Infection Audit update
The second phase of the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) Surgical Site Infection (SSI) audit commenced on the 2 August 2017.
Following a second round of recruitment, we now have even more participants taking part in the audit, with 663 Audit Leads covering 464 surgical units across 140 NHS Trusts. Data analysis for the first period is underway, and initial results will be shared with the respective GIRFT Clinical Leads, with the final report expected early next year for full publication. We also plan to issue a summary analysis to all participating Trusts, showing their own data, and how this compares to the national picture. Certificates of participation will be sent out shortly to Audit Leads involved in data collection for the first audit period.
Registration remains open, so if you know anyone who is still interested in participating, please direct them to the link below.
