    39% of hospital staff don't have constant access to soap and water

    It's an absolute disgrace, that in Britain today, 39% of hospital staff don't have access to soap and water. From the Guardian today:

    Some 61% of those surveyed did say that hygiene materials were always available when needed. But this fell as low as 46% at Barnet and Chase Farm hospitals in the London borough of Enfield, where concern about low standards of cleanliness was a big issue at the general election last year. At Great Ormond Street children's hospital 50% of staff were satisfied that the basic materials for effective hygiene were always available. Among ambulance staff the proportion fell to 38% in London and 37% in the Two Shires service covering Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire. The commission said that across England 28% of NHS staff claimed hygiene materials were available most of the time, but not always. Only 1% said they were never available.
