The Countess welcomes Infection Prevention Society torch tour 2016

Our Infection Prevention and Control Team today (27 May) welcomed the Infection Prevention Society’s hand hygiene torch as it continues its tour of the UK and Ireland.

The Infection Prevention Society are using the torch tour to raise awareness of the importance of hand hygiene among the general public, promote the Infection Prevention Society nationally and internationally and to highlight the annual World Health Organisation's ‘Clean Your Hands - Call to Action’ for healthcare workers.

The torch began its whistle stop tour of the Countess when it was handed over to our Infection Prevention and Control Team nurses in the main reception by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation.
