Nurses Appose Contract Cleaning in NHS Hospitals

by / Leave a Comment

Nurses have voted very much in favour of bringing the cleaning of NHS wards back in-house instead of contract cleaning.

May McCreaddie, from Glasgow, proposed calling on the RCN Council to lobby the Government to halt contract cleaning.

May explains: ‘There has been an increase in hospital infections and a decline in cleanliness. It’s quite simple. We know what works, we have been there, we have had them. They are called ward domestics, they are an integral part of the team.’
