The National Hand Hygiene Campaign for Scotland was launched in January 2007. Local Co-ordinators were employed to undertake activities that would raise awareness of Hand Hygiene and its importance in modern healthcare. Stefan Morton was employed in April 2007 as the NHSGGC Co-ordinator. The Campaign will run until April 2011 and evaluations are carried out on the effects of this. Local co-ordinators are found in every Scottish NHS Board area and are available for talks, presentations and demonstrations at public events.
