UV Lights aim to transform disinfection in Cystic Fibrosis unit Over the recent years, a group of dedicated patients and supporters of the charity have done a number of exciting fundraising events and activities to raise funds to go into the Cystic Fibrosis Fund (P8509). Royal Papworth Hospital decided to use the funds to purchase three new UV disinfection machines. The mobile machines have been proven to clean a room in 30 minutes and therefore are acting as one of the most effective methods of disinfection which can be used in hospitals. Consultant Microbiologist Dr Olly Allen said that, UV is a hugely effective method of disinfection and we want to use it after every CF patient leaves a room. No other hospital does this; it's above and beyond infection control but it will help keep our CF unit a centre of excellence.
