What could be improved
Having visited the Princxess Royal Hospital, Farnborough, several times over the past few months I have been very aware of the lack of anti-bacterial gel stations in the main entrance hall and elsewhere in the hospital. I believe that much of the infections being experienced in most of the hospitals in UK results from contact with visitors to the hospital. In order to reduce the amount of such infection I would have thought that there was great merit in having numerous antibacterial gel points established with prominent signs advising visitors and in-patients to utilise such gel in order to reduce the incidents of infection. Perhaps you could inform me of your policy regarding the provision of adequate antibacterial gel locations.
