Campaign Will Provide Handy Tips

An awareness campaign is being launched across Plymouth to remind NHS staff, patients and visitors to wash their hands.

NHS Plymouth will launch the Clean Your Hands campaign throughout community health services on October 15, Global Handwashing Day.

The drive features a range of specially designed posters, information leaflets and reminder cards produced by NHS Plymouth for use in inpatient wards, outpatient clinics and the community.

To mark the start of the campaign, staff at the Mount Gould Local Care Centre will be offering visitors, staff and patients the chance to test their handwashing technique using a 'glo box' which detects areas of the hands that have been missed during washing.
