Scientists in Cambridge say it may be "impossible" to completely eradicate all strains of MRSA in hospitals.
Instances of the superbug have decreased dramatically since 2001 because of new hygiene regimes, but experts say hospitals doing their best should not be penalised because it's impossible to control numerous strains of the bug being brought into hospitals unwittingly by patients and visitors.
"If you go above a certain level of patients screened positively for MRSA a year, then we are fined a lot of money.
The Government shouldn’t be gallivanting around suggesting a zero-tolerance policy, it can’t possibly work, the level can never be at zero."
