Hospital deep clean under attack

1st April 2008

Critics have attacked the government's £57.5 million plan to ensure all hospitals in the country were deep-cleaned by 31 March.

Labour confirmed that 93% of NHS trusts would have completed the cleaning process by the deadline. Professor Hugh Pennington of Aberdeen University said: "Politicians get hung up on cleaning but the major issue isn't environmental, it is the people bringing the bugs into hospital. That is what they should be attacking."
