MRSA Action UK will hold it’s Annual General Meeting on 17th March 2012. There are opportunities for members to be involved in shaping the way the Charity lobbies for improvement in our healthcare and help to raise awareness about healthcare infections and what we can do to stay well and reduce the risks of acquiring them.
This meeting is open to the public and we welcome new members and also those who work in the health industry. With many changes coming in the way healthcare is delivered the event is an important one for our charity, and we hope to attract both experts in infection prevention and control and patients and carers. We had a good attendance last year and look forward very much to meeting with friends and colleagues again this year to discuss our strategy in the coming year.

The Department of Health's (DoH) attempts to combat hospital 'super bugs' have achieved mixed results.
Health minister Andy Burnham has insisted the government can still meet its target to cut rates of hospital superbug MRSA, after a leaked memo shows the NHS is set to miss it.
The battle against MRSA is showing signs of success, with cases down by a third compared to last year.
The government's focus on MRSA is contributing to rising numbers of other healthcare-associated infections, it has been claimed.
Patients are unable to make a meaningful choice about which hospital they prefer without full information about infection rates, a health expert has said.
The health secretary has ordered all hospitals to complete anti-superbug 'deep cleans' by March 2008.
The health watchdog has today condemned "serious failings" in the management of an NHS trust, which led to the death of 33 people from a hospital-acquired infection.
The government has today hit back at the Conservatives' new health reform plans, saying their pledge to scrap NHS targets would result in an increase in MRSA.
NHS trusts are working harder to improve their infection control standards after a sustained focus from the government, a survey has suggested.
New statistics out today show strong progress against hospital superbugs, but opposition parties are challenging the figures.
