Post Infection Review Update

NHS Improvement have updated their guidance on MRSA Post Infection Review (PIR). The updated guidance can be found here.
For MRSA cases with specimen dates from April 2018, the PIR process will no longer be required, but instead replaced by formal local reviews of MRSA cases for those Trusts and CCGs with the highest MRSA rates. The MRSA reviews will also move from being administered through the DCS to a process administered and run locally. From 1st April 2018, MRSA cases with a specimen date of equal to or greater than 1st April 2018 will not trigger a PIR and the associated, question tabs and email notifications. Cases with a specimen date prior to 1st April 2018 will still initiate a PIR even if they are entered on the DCS after 1st April 2018.
