Brighton hospitals picture patients in poster campaign

Staff and patients at three Brighton hospitals are among the stars of a poster campaign which started this week.
The posters are to remind doctors and nurses, patients and visitors to clean their hands to cut the risk of infections.
They feature photos of patients and staff at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and the Sussex Eye hospital, all in Kemp Town.
The blue and yellow themed posters are intended to remind people of the importance of infection control and good hygiene.
Duncan Selbie, chief executive of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs the three hospitals, said: “Good hand hygiene is the most effective measure we can all take to prevent infections in our hospitals.
“The prevention and control of infection on our wards is our highest priority.”
The hospitals – and two others in Haywards Heath – have passed two independent hygiene spot-checks this year as “best in class”, according to the trust. This put them in the top 20 per cent of hospitals in England.
