I am a Lecturer with the University of Nottingham. I am an ex infection control nurse currently undertaking a PhD. As part of my study I am reviewing all Acute, PCT and Mental Health hand hygiene policies in NHS trusts in England. Many trusts post these on the internet and I have been able to locate about a third. Your trust is not one of them. Therefore I would like to make a request for your organisations most recent hand hygiene policy.
Thank you for your application for information below, made under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000.
In response to your request, please see the attached Standard Principles
of Infection Control Policy which also includes associated procedures for
hand hygiene. This and further information can be found on the NHS Western
Cheshire public website at the following link
under the heading Infection Prevention and Control.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
