Government accused over MRSA target

Link: Channel 4 - News - Government accused over MRSA target.

The Government has been accused of dirty tricks after new details emerged of how it plans to hit a controversial MRSA target. The Liberal Democrats and Tories hit out after it emerged the Government was taking into account reductions in the MRSA rate including the first quarter of 2008/2009. In 2004, former health secretary John Reid said the Government would halve rates of MRSA by the end of March 2008. The Government confirmed it would use figures from April to June 2008 to calculate the figure.
