As part of the campaign the medical centre will be taking part in a national awareness day on Wednesday.
Between 10am and 2pm the trust's infection prevention team will be in the hospital's restaurant to provide staff, patients and visitors with information about what the trust is doing in the fight against healthcare acquired infections.
They will also be seeking views on some new products, such as an automatic hand gel dispenser.
Chris Craven, from the trust's infection prevention team, said: "We wanted to take the opportunity to share with people all of the good work that the trust does on infection prevention.
"We continue to be one of the best performing trusts in the East of England for MRSA and Clostridium.difficile, and this is because of all of the good work that takes place here."
