Washing hands is the basis of health

NHS TAYSIDE is supporting the World Health Organisation’s ‘SAVE LIVES: Clean Your Hands’ initiative celebrating hand hygiene promotion and improvement.

NHS Tayside is carrying out a questionnaire for some of those members of the public who have been an inpatient or outpatient within the last six months, to gauge present public opinion around the issue of hand hygiene.

If you are in that category, either as an inpatient or for an outpatient appointment, it would be helpful if you could take the time to complete the online questionnaire which can be accessed at www.yournhstayside.scot.nhs.uk and follow ‘Consultations’.

This questionnaire will be ‘live’ for the whole of May to maximise the public’s opportunity of completing it.

The questions seek views on public awareness as to how diseases can be spread, their opinion of our facilities and their perception of staff compliance with hand hygiene expectations.
