"spreading germs"

About: William Harvey Hospital

i recently visited your hospital, i was very impressed with your automatic doors,

but when using the visitors toilets i was dismayed to find i had to use my hands after washing them to open the door ,which most likely is covered with germs.

Why do you not have automatic doors there as well,as some people may not wash their

hands,but all have to touch the door to get out !

Thank you so much for your feedback. I do see what you mean, and will certainly mention this to our Estates Dept for their refurbishment planning.

Wishing you well,
