It’s in your hands – prevent sepsis in health care

Horder Healthcare has pledged to support the World Health Organisation's (WHO) annual awareness campaign 'Clean your Hands 2018' and will promote the key messages to both staff and patients over the coming week.

We take hand hygiene extremely seriously and have already included it as part of our mandatory training for both clinical and non clinical staff at all sites. In addition we audit our hand hygiene as part of our compliance throughout the year.

WHO calls on health facilities to prevent health care-associated sepsis through hand hygiene and infection prevention and control (IPC) action. Sepsis is estimated to affect more than 30 million patients every year worldwide. At the Seventieth World Health Assembly in May 2017, Member States adopted a resolution on improving the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sepsis.

Patient Testimonials

  • David Goldfinch

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “The worst thing was that my hip stopped me working and the pain meant I couldn’t even put my shoes and socks on. I am already starting to feel better and am walking on crutches and can go up and down stairs. I hope to be back at work towards the end of February.

    “Everything about The Horder Centre was really nice. The staff were lovely. I’ve been to a few hospitals and just found the staff there so friendly – they would do anything for you.”

  • Kerry Scrivener

    Cosmetic Surgery | The McIndoe Centre

    “I liked Mr Teo because he was very informative, supportive and clear in the treatment he felt I would benefit from. I would definitely recommend him and The McIndoe Centre.

    I found all the staff excellent. from the warm and welcoming reception staff, to all the nurses who communicated clearly between themselves so I didn’t have to go over information again and again."

  • Antony Michell

    Modified Pilates

    “A definite improvement resulted and in March this year I joined the special knee and hip Pilates class at the Tunbridge Wells clinic which I still attend weekly. From being almost unable to get upstairs 18 months ago, I am back playing tennis and some squash. Horder Healthcare Tunbridge Wells clinic is ideal for me with most kindly staff and excellent, efficient instructors.”

  • Dr Lee

    Knee Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “My experience was absolutely marvellous but the two things that made the most impression were the care and cheerfulness of everybody, even the person who dropped off the newspaper was cheerful, and when people are like that, you can’t help but be the same.”
