'Deep clean' to be televised

  • 1 Comment
Nurses in Somerset are due to appear on national television, as part of their trust’s ‘deep clean’.

BBC2’s Daily Politics Show will feature the work being done at Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust this Friday lunchtime.

All the wards are being cleaned from top to bottom by a specially-trained cleaning team and the curtains are being replaced with a new design on anti-bacterial material.

Alison Moon, the trust’s director of nursing, will be interviewed for the programme.

‘The trust is delighted to take part in the filming,’ she said. ‘The phrase ‘deep clean’ is often talked about although many people are not really aware of what it involves. This is a great opportunity to let viewers know exactly what it entails.

‘We intend to carry on the deep cleaning as a rolling programme and, thanks to the additional funding,’ she added.

  • Big publicity stunt!... if they really want hospitals clean they should get rid of privatly employed cleaners and bring back housekeepers who are managed by matrons
