Soft toys spread disease28th May 2009
Health experts in Hammersmith and Fulham are advising doctors to remove communal soft toys in clinical waiting areas to combat the spread of disease.
Public health director Dr Dagmar Zeuner said the toys provided an "easy route" for disease to spread in children. Department of Health and the Health Protection Agency guidance covering flu pandemics also suggests that soft toys and magazines should be removed from waiting rooms, though it adds the removal of toys from communal areas would be a matter for local NHS organisations.
