Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust

Background

Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust had been using Chlorclean as an integral part of its cleaning and decontamination process since 2008.

Approach

As a part of proactively assessing alternative market products, I noticed SoChlor which had similar product constitute but with a reduced surfactant level to the product I was using. I found this advantageous in relation to residue of product left from the cleaning process. On further examination there appeared to be a slight cost reduction to my current budget spend and the training, product support seemed superior.

With the support of our proactive Infection Control team, we introduced a trial of SoChlor across our acute site. This was introduced to the organisation supported with product information, training via the GV Health team. The implementation of the trial and the use of the product was adopted so e ortlessly a decision was made to continue using the product and roll this out throughout all clinical areas of the Trust.

Results

  • There were no problems experienced in the seamless transition of the product change
  • I have not encountered any problems in the usage or the performance of the product
  • The staff have advised me, when using this product, that they are pleased with the results as it appears to leave the surfaces streak free and have a better finish result in comparison to the previous product

“I am happy to endorse SoChlor as a product which assists in the cleaning and continuation for Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust’s reduction of Hospital Acquired Infections.”
