The Central Sterilising Club was founded in 1960 by a small group of enthusiastic individuals who were either working in the rapidly evolving central sterile supply departments or were attempting to solve the many problems associated with developing rapid, safe methods for sterilising surgical items in bulk.
Over 60 years The CSC has evolved, finding strength in its multi-disciplinary membership of: microbiologists, infection prevention nurses, engineers, sterile service staff and commercial representatives, to debate and share decontamination solutions for increasingly complex medical devices.
