Synergy Health partners with Age UK East London to reduce infection risk
Synergy Health has partnered with Age UK East London to help the charity reduce the risk of infection in the community. The company has donated a year's supply of its Assure Antimicrobial Hand Sanitiser to ensure excellent hand hygiene among the charity's staff. This will help protect the health of vulnerable older people, whose immune systems might be weak and may be susceptible to infection.
Bee Burgess, Director of Community Services for Age UK East London, says: "Our workers are out and about in the community and can carry the pocket sized Assure hand sanitiser around with them to ensure that they always practice the highest standards of hand hygiene. As a charity, every penny counts and the money we save through Synergy Health's generous donation can be used to improve our services to older people in East London."
Dr. Jimmy Kwok, Managing Director, Synergy Health Infection Prevention & Control division, adds:
"We are proud to support Age UK East London and to help them promote good standards of healthcare through improved hand hygiene. This is an important part of our corporate social responsibility programme to support a range of different healthcare charities and to become more involved with local communities in the UK which can benefit from our donations."
Assure is an alcohol -free hand sanitiser that is specifically designed for hygienic hand disinfection. It also helps prevent dry skin and does not require water or rinsing, leaving hands soft and moisturised. Its antimicrobial technology conforms to EN1500 and EN1276 standards and is effective against a range of micro-organisms including E.Coli, Pseudomonas and Enterrococci.
It also provides a 24-hour residual activity against infections and minimises the risk of cross infection long after it has been applied due to an effective barrier that remains on the skin to offer sustained protection.
