Hand hygiene

Advice for patients

Many infections can be passed on by contact so we need the help of patients to prevent this. Cleaning hands is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of all infections and we encourage our patients to do this as well as our staff.

Here are a few tips:

  • ask the staff caring for you whether they have cleaned their hands - they really do not mind

  • use the hand cleaning facilities at every bed side, ward entrance and every bedside and encourage your visitors to do so as well

  • please tell a member of staff if you see a spillage or something which needs cleaning

  • please clean your hands with the gel before meals and wash them after you've used the toilet

  • please do not sit on another patient's bed

  • bring personal toiletries including soap and a clean flannel with you. Men should bring their own razor in with them.

Cleaning hands is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of all infections and we encourage our patients to do this as well as our staff.

Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.  Information about our local services can be found on this website here.

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here.
