One of our best weapons in the fight against infection is to ensure that patients and visitors wash their hands on entering and leaving the hospital and wards.

Promoting regular hand washing

This is because bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics are on the increase and to keep the hospital safe, we all need to take care, wash our hands regularly and use the alcohol gel provided.

Wash away the problem before it becomes one. Together we can fight the spread of infection
