BARNSLEY Hospital has been forced into issuing a reminder to people after reports that hand sanitizer was being stolen from wards.
A statement said: “We would like to remind people that the most effective way of combating coronavirus is through regular and thorough hand-washing which is why it is important for the hospital wards to have easy access to these gels.
“Hand gel in wards is there to protect staff, visitors, patients and are not to be removed for any reason.”
