MRSA Action UK is a registered charity that supports people who have been affected by healthcare infections. We provide advice and information to people who enquire on the best way to prepare and reduce the risks of contracting an infection.
We provide a patient voice to those who influence and regulate the delivery of high quality, safe patient care.
We work in partnership with healthcare providers, both in the public and private sector in the United Kingdom. We are an independent organisation and advise and work with government, the public, patients and other professions to promote awareness of healthcare infections and how to prevent them.
