The information requested is not collected centrally. The most reliable data on methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections in England are for MRSA bloodstream infections from April 2001 through the mandatory surveillance scheme. Regional data for each six month period from April 2001 to March 2006 were published on 24 July 2006, and these are available on the Health Protection Agency's website at: report_2006.htm
