STOP PRESS: Hot drinks banned in GP surgeries

Following the news that staff are to be banned from drinking on the wards at a Leicester Hospital the Care Quantity Commission have today announced details of their latest plans to ban the consumption of hot drinks by GPs and practice nurses at their desks.

A spokesman told us, “The latest microbiological evidence, from a trial involving 11 mugs from a surgery in Wakefield, show that mugs harbour all sorts of infection. And it’s clear we all know that the mouth is the dirtiest part of the body. And what would happen if any was spilled onto a wipe-clean floor? It could really compromise patient safety and care.”
