The NHS is now screening all relevant patients for MRSA before planned operations. This will help the NHS reduce the chances of patients getting an MRSA infection, or passing MRSA on to another patient.

These template patient leaflets have been developed to assist local areas in their patient communications around this topic. The templates are for illustrative use only.

For more information on MRSA screening watch the commercials being shown across GP surgeries:
