As part of my departmental duties involving child safety, on Friday I visited the burns unit at Pinderfields hospital in my constituency, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the NHS. I am pleased to say that I washed my hands on the way in, while I was on the ward and on the way out—at least three different times. This Department is hand-washing to ensure that we tackle any problems of lack of hygiene in wards, so that children are safe from burns in my constituency, and in constituencies throughout the country.
