Action on mixed sex wards6th May 2009
Work towards eliminating mixed sex accommodation in hospitals across England is under way with over 700 projects planned across 200 organisations.
Health secretary Alan Johnson said the work is part of the government’s pledge to ensure that men and women will not have to share sleeping areas, bathrooms or toilets when admitted to hospital. He added that in the coming months he only expects to see mixed sex accommodation where it is clinically justified. From next year those trusts who fail in this duty will be financially penalised.
