Article: 56/1301

On 5 April 2022, quarterly epidemiological data on Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI), Escherichia coli bacteraemia (ECB), Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB), and surgical site infection (SSI) in Scotland, covering October to December (Q4) 2021, was published under the mandatory programmes for surveillance of CDI, ECB, SAB, and SSI in Scotland. Please note, data for SSI are not included due to the pausing of surveillance to support the COVID-19 response.

This report provides data for the fourth quarter of 2021 in 14 NHS boards and one NHS special health board. In addition, an appendix can also be accessed which details all cases and denominator data for each NHS board and for Scotland overall.
