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

  • Nhs Patient

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    From my first consultation to having a total hip replacement the advice and care were second to none. The care doesn't finish after going home. I received a phone call to check my progress and have the Horder Centre comprehensive book to refer to.

  • Josephine Mitchell

    Cosmetic Surgery | The McIndoe Centre

    “I had different surgery options after the radiotherapy but I felt this one was the best one for me. Mrs Hazari was marvellous and the staff were so caring and helpful. It was a difficult time for me because I could hardly move after the operation so needed a lot of care.

    I would thoroughly recommend The McIndoe Centre. I felt very secure there. It’s a lovely place and the food was fantastic. I only wish I could have eaten more of it!”

  • Colin Quickfall

    Hip Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “The Horder Centre was recommended to me by friends who had said how good it was. I found everyone so pleasant and they just had time for me. It felt like a private hospital and it’s in such a lovely position in the country. I would definitely recommend it.”

  • Robert Harber

    Knee Replacement (total) | The Horder Centre

    “Mr Butler-Manuel was the first consultant I saw who had any time for me and who listened to me. I think what is different about The Horder Centre is the team spiritHaving had countless operations, the Horder Centre is, in my opinion, streets above all the private hospitals I have been in. Nothing was too much trouble. After a couple of weeks I felt my knee wasn’t bending properly and within an hour, I was seeing a doctor then a specialist then a physiotherapist.”
