MORE than 25 people attended a meeting to share experiences about MRSA and clostridium difficile infections claimed to have been picked up at Hereford County Hospital.

They had all responded to a call from Hereford Hospital Trust Patient and Public Involvement Forum, asking patients or relatives to talk about the situation.

During the meeting, at the WRVS centre in Hereford, they expressed a variety of concerns about their stay in hospital but most admitted they had not gone through the hospital's recognised complaints procedure to let the hospital authority know about them.

Anyone interested in joining the forum can call Sarah Epps, PPI co-ordinator for Herefordshire, on 01432 354975 or email herefordshire
