Infection Control

Following the talk on infection control by Angela Billings, Infection Prevention and Control Practitioner from NHS Sheffield, we can now give you the details of NHS approved hand hygiene and disinfection wipes.

For alcohol hand rubs, the three products are:

Purell Hand Sanitising Gel

“Softalind visco rub” by B Braun

Spirigel Alcohol Hand Gel by Ecolab

The disinfection wipes are:

PDI Sani-cloth Detergent Wipe

Azo Wipes

Sani-cloth active alcohol free disinfectant wipe

These are mostly available from Williams Medical Supplies (01685 844739 or, where you can also find hand moisturisers. The Azo wipes are available from Midoptic.

Angela is happy to help with any infection control issues you might have, and she is able to loan equipment that can be used to demonstrate good hand hygiene. These are “glow and tell” UV lightboxes , which demonstrate how effective your hand hygeine techinques are, and will serve as your mandatory annual hand hygiene update on completion.
