This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Sir/Madame
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.
Kind Regards
Mark Cole
