Sue is here to help keep us safe!

Sue Walton works one day a fortnight in charge of Infection Prevention and Control (her other focus is as a nurse supporting Hospice patients in the community).  Her biggest message to volunteers is to remember hand hygiene and please do not come in if you are sick!  (Remember it is 48 hours after symptoms of a stomach upset).  We want to keep you safe and keep those around you safe.  The amount required of volunteers is relevant to the areas you volunteer in.  For example - the infection control methods (gloves, food hygiene, cleaning) for the kitchen at the Hospice (serving food to patients with compromised immune systems) is different to those required in the shops.  The most important thing to remember is hand hygiene!
