Infection Prevention and Control

General Infection Control Advice

Each year thousands of people; patients, staff and visitors, pass through our Surgical Centre and it is our priority is to do our very best to minimise the risk of infection that such a busy environment presents.

Probus Surgical Centre has an excellent reputation for delivering high quality healthcare treatments and services. Everything we do is focused on providing the very best health care to all in a clean and safe environment.

We robustly monitor ourselves and involve our patients in measuring and maintaining our service. We value our patients’ feedback and regularly use patient satisfaction questionnaires, to which we have a very good participation rate, regarding their treatment and clinical outcomes and are delighted by the results and comments we receive.

We have 2 ventilated operating theatres and a minor procedures treatment room and have excellent levels of cleanliness, low infection rates (currently at 0.1%) and effective infection control measures in place.  All of which are backed up by 99% patient satisfaction scores.

Probus Surgical Centre has a no smoking policy throughout the Centre including the grounds.

We have an annual infection control inspection by the Nurse Consultant Director of Infection Prevention & Control, NHS KERNOW CCG. Last year’s report can be viewed at Infection Control Inspection 02.04.19
