Tory call for 'superbug fines'

2nd January 2008

Conservative leader David Cameron will suggest NHS hospitals should be given a fine for each patient under their care who contracts a superbug.

Mr Cameron will give a speech following a visit to a hospital in Manchester and will also mark the 60th anniversary of the NHS. He will condone fines as "a means of hard-wiring infection control into the system".

Mr Cameron will say: "It should be a basic rule of social policy that you don't pay for what you don't want more of. Money should attend success, not failure."
