As vaccination centres nationwide continue providing the Covid vaccine day and night, Nursem – a caring skincare brand developed with nurses to counter the harsh effects of constant hand washing, has pledged to donate hand care to support vaccination centres across the UK.
The brand currently donates a month’s supply of hand cream to an NHS nurse or midwife for every product sold in the UK via its Nursem Promise pledge.
However, at a time when vaccine staff have to wash their hands after every dose administered, Nursem recognise the urgent need for hand care at vaccination centres, as staff continue to work tirelessly across the nation at this extremely challenging time.
The product counters the negative effects of excessive handwashing on nurse’s skin, who wash their hands an average of 55 times a day while caring for patients; something that volunteers and healthcare workers in vaccination centres and Brits across the UK can relate to in the fight against coronavirus.
Nursem will be donating hand care to centres in London, Bristol, Newcastle, Cambridge and Edinburgh, through the month of March and will continue to support vaccination centres ongoing through 2021.
Co-founder Antonia Philp said: “As we saw with 2020, the NHS received a surge in support which we all hope is here to stay, as our key workers continue to work tirelessly caring for those most in need and now with their team of nationwide vaccinators. We’re thrilled to now have supported so many NHS workers, and to extend our support to vaccination centres who will be starting to experience the effects of over washing and practicing good hand hygiene.”
The pledge to support vaccination centres comes follows Nursem’s hand care donation to help over 160,000 nurses and midwife through the Nursem Promise, as part of their mission to give free hand care to every UK NHS nurse and midwife by 2025.
