CHESHIRE businesses which have products or technologies that could help prevent the spread of MRSA or other superbugs are asked to come forward to take part in a new NHS programme.
Project director Dr Bryan Griffiths, who lives in Upton, Chester, is seeking the most effective new solutions from across all industry sectors to help in the fight against healthcare associated infections (HCAIs).
The Smart Solutions programme offers companies the chance to have their product assessed by a team of independent experts, with a view to evaluating it in a hospital setting and potentially supplying it across the NHS.
Applications can be submitted online via the website – www.smartsolutionsforhcai.co.uk – on or before September 26, 2008.
