1. What is the average length of time per patient to change a Foley catheter? For the procedure itself, if uncomplicated, approximately 15-30mins (depends on the patient). 

2. Of those patients who have a Foley catheter, what proportion do you estimate will develop a CAUTI? Please see safety thermometer data publically available. Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust does not monitor this information and cannot therefore provide and accurate response. 

3. How many patients today have a CAUTI in your Trust? Please see safety thermometer data. Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust does not record this information centrally, obtaining this information would require manually going through physical patient records which would go above and beyond the timeframe specified under Section12 of the Freedom of Information Act. 

4. On average (in days), when does the patient develop a CAUTI? Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust does not monitor this information and cannot therefore provide and accurate response. 

5. How many times a day (24 hours) do you assist patients with a CAUTI? As required – patient care is individual.
