STAFF from Beardwood Hospital visited Westholme Infant School to teach pupils the importance of hand washing and germ control.

It was the third visit to the school by the private hospital’s ‘Clean Team’, led by Sue Walsh, who came armed with a UV light box and a special hand wash that mimics germs, to show the children just how easy it was to spread bacteria.

She said: “It was lovely to be asked back to Westholme Infant School to teach a new intake of students about hand washing and hygiene.

“At BMI The Beardwood Hospital, we are committed to providing the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness to our patients and it’s great that we are able to take this knowledge out into the local community to educate our children.”
