Avoiding E coli – short film for staff, patients and carers

30 July 2020

A significant cause of E coli blood stream infections is urinary tract infections, which can in some cases be avoided by hydration and hygiene measures. This short film provides key health messages for the general public, on how to avoid E coli blood stream infections. This resource will support NHS systems to work together to reduce urinary tract infection and E coli blood stream infections. Use this film to communicate with at risk populations as part of system communications - for example in health care waiting rooms, social care waiting rooms or via social media.
