One of our founding beliefs at Circle, is that by providing information on our clinical results, our patients and their GPs will be able to make a more informed choice about coming to our NHS Treatment Centre. Everything we measure we publish on our website for all to see.
Because of the stringent approach Circle takes to infection prevention and control, in the last 12 months across our hospitals we have had zero reported cases of bloodstream infections for MSSA, MRSA, E. Coli and no cases of C-Diff.

Unplanned returns to theatre
An operation, however minor, is a serious event and we understand that this can make our patients feel nervous. However, we work hard to ensure all our patients receive the best possible outcome first time round. Consequently unplanned returns to our own theatres within 30 days of surgery are measured on a monthly basis.
During February 2018, Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre has had 1 unplanned return to our own theatres.
MRSA bloodstream infections
We know our Patients are concerned by what they read about healthcare associated infections, like MRSA, which is one of the reasons why we strive to provide the very highest standards of care. Nationally this is measured through the number of MRSA bloodstream infections acquired within healthcare organisations. You can read more about our infection control policies relating to this here.
