Microbiology and Virology
Jonathan Edgeworth focusses on prevention, diagnosis and management of bacterial infections, particularly those due to antimicrobial-resistant bacteria or that develop in patients while in hospital.
Edgeworth works in both the diagnostic laboratory and on the wards providing an advisory service to clinicians to help them ensure their patients get appropriate antibiotic therapy, whilst limiting unnecessary antibiotic use that drives resistance.
It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
