Preventing the spread of infection

I AM concerned that on visits to doctor’s waiting rooms and hospitals, I have seen few people cleanse their hands as notices require, in order to help stop the spread of infection.

I also feel that visitors to hospital wards, especially surgical and maternity wards, should wear protective clothing.

I believe that as infections could be brought in on feet and wheels from outside, each entrance should have a disinfected mat - perhaps a project for the Friends of the Hospitals?

Talking to people and patients, it is a shame that even now they do not realise the huge support the Friends of the Hospitals give to their hospitals and that so few people put a few coppers in their collection box.
