The three previous issues of volume 100 have taken readers on a journey from historical features to state of the art articles; in the final issue of the volume we take a look to the future, beginning with an article on fake news in infection prevention and control. There are also articles on the use of newer electrical appliances in hospitals, including electric hand dryers and bladeless fans. There is also a large special section on surgical site infections. Continuing the 'looking to the future' theme, this includes articles by Godbole et al. and Troughton et al. that address the future of surgical site infection surveillance in England. Finally, the December issue would not be complete without some interesting case reports. This year we have an eclectic mix of reports in an electronic supplement.
