The national nosocomial COVID-19 programme

The national nosocomial COVID-19 programme (NNCP) was set up as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

“Nosocomial” means - any infection, including COVID-19, which is caught when a patient catches it when receiving healthcare/treatment for something else.

The document below aims to provide answers to some of the common questions asked regarding the programme.  We know that patients and families will have more detailed questions.  At the end of this document, readers will find contact details for each Health Board and Trust, where individual queries can be raised and responded to directly by the appropriate organisation.
