Right Arrow Trust shares expertise with EU
24 November 2009 at 15:37
Senior EU Health Specialist, Chris White, of the North West Health Brussels Office visited Southport & Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust this week to meet Microbiology Consultant Dr Judith Bowley, and Trust Chairman Sir Ron Watson.

Because the Trust has a reputation as a leader in infection control and prevention, Mr White was keen to see how we could help to spread best practice across other EU Member States. It is hoped that a funding stream can be identified to enable us to build on our expertise and share this with others.

Sir Ron said of Chris's visit; "I have worked with Chris for some time in conjunction with work done at European level. I am delighted that he was able to visit the Trust when in the North West for a short time. We want to be in the forefront of developments in infection control and pass on our skills to others within the EU as far as we can."
