Sun’s Out, BBQ’s Out!

Keep your hands and tummy healthy! Summer is round the corner and many of us will be firing up our barbecues, entertaining friends and family in the sunshine (hopefully)!

To make sure that you serve up a sensational barbecue that also keeps your family and friends safe, Mid Essex CCG’s Infection Control and Prevention Nurse Specialist John Swanson explains in a video on their Twitter page why it’s important to wash your hands. John also offers a quick refresher on good hand hygiene.

Our hands are one of the main ways we spread germs, so it’s important to wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before cooking, after touching the bin, going to the toilet, and before and after touching raw food, especially meat – something most of us tend to do when cooking food for a barbecue!
