Infection control

Together we can fight infection

Infections aren’t fussy about who spreads them, so we all need to be careful. Here are some simple things we can all do to help prevent the spread of infections…

Wash and clean your hands thoroughly and regularly:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water every time you enter and leave a ward or clinic. This will help protect you against the winter vomiting bug
  • Wash your hands with soap and water after visiting the toilet
