Infection control: hand cleaning techniques
To ensure we are maintaining the highest levels of infection control, we ask that you are aware of the guidance regarding handwashing. One of the easiest ways to protect yourself and others from illnesses such as food poisoning and flu and COVID-19 is by washing your hands. By doing so, it removes dirt, viruses, and bacteria and therefore stops the spread of viruses to other people and on to objects. We encourage patients to view the guidance regarding handwashing techniques and best practice prior to your appointment.
The handwashing guidance is by the NHS National Safety Agency and has been adapted from the World Health Organisation on hand hygiene and care.
