Dales patients who have suffered a Clostridium difficile infection are to be given a card to help reduce the risk of a relapse of the infection.

They are being asked to show the card to doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals to alert them to the infection to avoid prescribing medications that could cause a relapse.

Dr Ben Milton (pictured above), chairman of NHS North Derbyshire CCG, said: “The majority of C. difficile cases occur in people who have had antibiotics.”
