The Infection Prevention Society (IPS) is the premiere professional organisation in Europe for nurses involved in infection prevention and control. With c2000 members in the United Kingdom and Ireland the views of the Society are taken seriously by the Government, industry and the NHS and all those associated with programmes to reduce avoidable infection.
The IPS Board acknowledges that the support it receives from commercial organisations is crucial to sustaining and further developing its position as a scientific educational body and its ability to influence opinion and thinking at home and around the world.
The IPS run Product Surgeries at which commercial firms are able to get advice from infection prevention and control experts about the efficacy of their products, the likely use they might have at the NHS front line and the extent to which the NHS can afford the technology or product.

If you have a product or technology that you believe will help in the battle against avoidable infection in the NHS and if you can show that the underpinning science is valid then the IPS may be able to make a public endorsement once we have checked on the claims made.
