Health boards in Wales have bee told to appoint infection control nurses to lead a new strategy to reduce community infections.

At present provision for infection control in the community varies widely, with few trained staff or resources allocated to reducing infections, according to the Welsh Assembly's draft strategy.

Only seven out of 22 local health boards said they had an infection control nurse as part of their infection control service and there is very little information on the subject, the report said.
