A nurse has been appointed to tackle hospital acquired infections across East Sussex Hospitals NHS trust. Tina Lloyd, who started working for the trust as a trainee infection control nurse, has been appointed as lead for infection control.

Ms Lloyd said: 'Our department has been reconfigured and we now have one infection control team across both our Eastbourne and Hastings sites.?

Saving Lives, the Department of Health's initiative to reduce HAIs, is a major element of Tina's new role. The programme includes nine challenges where the trust has to assess its own performance.

Ms Lloyd added: 'By assessing our performance against the challenges, we can see what we are doing well at and where we need to improve. We want to see best practice embedded in wards throughout the trust and that's what Saving Lives is all about.'
