Washing your hands sounds like such a simple piece of common sense that its importance can easily be forgotten, and reminding people to do it can feel silly. But it isn't.
By reminding people to clean their hands, providing proper alcohol rub, and monitoring staff, patient and visitor behaviour, the CleanYourHands campaign has saved an estimated ten thousand lives a year since its inception. That's more than some medicines.
But the campaign isn't over. Cuts and public service reforms mean that the risk of hospital hygiene slipping down the patient care priority list is worse than ever. That's why we have produced this exclusive, animated video in partnership with MRSA Action UK.
