Pets MRSA site founder Jill Moss with actress Leslie Ash at the recent Cleaner Hospitals Summit.
I attended the Patients' Summit in London on the 14th of April where many issues concerning MRSA and healthcare were discussed. During the opening speeches Claire Rayner announced that I was present and asked me to stand up and display the brochure which generated a huge amount of interest. Claire has been an amazing support and for that we thank her.
I also had the chance to speak to Leslie Ash, who told me she has a dog that means the world to her and is so shocked to learn that MRSA is now affecting pets that she said 'It's really getting out of control and we need to do something'. She said the work we are doing is very important. I also met Dr Phil Hammond (from TVs 'Trust Me I'm A Doctor) who spoke at the end of the day to an invited audience and who showed great interest in the work of the charity. More will be reported in our next update.
