Glove Awareness Week

Date: 29-03 May 2019

Location: Nationwide

To coincide with World Hand Hygiene Day on 5 May, NHS England are hosting a Glove Awareness Week to raise awareness of skin health and appropriate glove use by nursing staff.

Building on the success of a 2018 pilot week, resources are being expanded to highlight the clinical, financial and environmental impact of inappropriate glove use. 

For the 2019 Week promotion of key messages will be continued, including importance of all healthcare workers understanding when gloves should and shouldn't be worn and how to protect the skin on your hands.
