In Birmingham in February 2020 together with over 500 colleagues from across the “whole health economy” we will review the CQUIN results and look forward to see what progress is required to deliver the “Long Term Plan” targets in Infection Prevention & Control. We will review the new structures and working group initiatives of NHSE and PHE.

In 2016 the former Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt launched new plans to reduce infections in the NHS. He announced the government’s programme to halve the number of gram-negative bloodstream infections by 2020. The actions included the Serious Infection CQUIN 2017-2019 which was designed to tackle issues such as AMR and deteriorating conditions such as sepsis. As we enter a new decade we will take a fresh look at the challenges that we face today and those we will face in the coming days and years.

The UK Government has long been an advocate of action to address antimicrobial resistance, with a national strategy and action plan in place since 2000.
