Visit the skin health and surface hygiene experts at stand 2.

GOJO, THE INVENTOR OF PURELL™ – and the hand sanitiser category itself – is delighted to be exhibiting at the annual Infection Prevention Society conference. This year, the show is taking place at the ACC in Liverpool, from 17th – 19th October 2023. At its stand, GOJO’s team of Healthcare Support Managers will showcase the company’s ability improve hygiene standards in hospitals and healthcare facilities, whilst also helping them to lower carbon emissions.

Like GOJO, the NHS is committed to becoming carbon neutral. However, delivering a net zero health service is particularly challenging in clinical care settings, where patient outcomes and hygiene effectiveness must be balanced with sustainable practices and objectives. Low carbon alternatives need to be implemented through responsible product choices, without compromising patients’ safety.

Widely used in the NHS, PURELL® is a both a trusted brand in healthcare facilities around the world and an environmentally responsible choice. The company has recently launched ‘Journey to Green,’ which outlines the positive changes that are being made to protect the planet. For example, it is reducing its reliance on virgin plastics and is the first company in the hygiene sector to use 100% post-consumer recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (R-PET) in its collapsible refill cartridges.

PURELL was recently recognised as a key NHS partner, having been showcased within the commemorative book, ‘NHS 75: Celebrating 75 Years of the National Health Service.’ A market leader of hand hygiene within the UK’s health service, PURELL has been instrumental in helping the NHS achieve core KPIs, such as reductions in the number of healthcare associated infections (HCAIs). Its solutions encompass fast-active, effective formulas that care for skin, state of the art dispensers, and it provides dedicated support such as the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) accredited training.

Chris Wakefield, V.P. European Marketing and Managing Director UK & Ireland, GOJO Industries-Europe Ltd. comments: ‘We have partnered with the NHS for over 30 years now and are passionate about supplying products that are safe, effective, and good for both people and planet. We understand the challenges of healthcare hygiene from all angles: the barriers to compliance, optimal positioning, efficacy, and the impact on skin health are just some of the factors to consider.

‘We strongly advocate for “sustainability without compromise” within hospitals and healthcare facilities. By providing solutions that are effective, a pleasure to use and that minimise their environmental impact, we can help healthcare managers strike the balance between efficacy and sustainability, and in turn, maintain current levels of care.’
