IPS award winners host their group meeting at Wybone HQ

November 26, 2018

We recently welcomed the Infection Prevention Society Mental Health and Learning Disability Special Interest Group into our offices here in Barnsley.

As a leading manufacturer of clinical and domestic sackholders, we have worked closely with the IPS for many years to promote and sustain improvements in infection prevention.

When guests come to visit, we make sure they are well looked after – from hosting the venue to providing lunch and treats.

Our visitors were this year’s winners at the IPS Annual Conference in Scotland for the IPS Branch/Special Interest Group of the Year – they even brought their award with them to show us in the office.

Once their meeting had finished, it was time to show off our manufacturing knowledge. We gave the group a tour around our factory, focusing on the Sackholder department.

Whilst in the department, the group were shown various Wybone products including the Mental Health Sackholder – they were impressed with the new design and how it could help their trusts.

Jill Perlstrom-Wright, the Infection Prevention and Control Coordinator at Sheffield Health and Social Care Trust thanked us for the day: “Great day with great discussions. Thanks for being such great hosts!”

Pixy Strazds, the Lead Practitioner for Infection Prevention and Control said: “Thanks to all at Wybone for making us so welcome. We really appreciate your support.”

We love to show customers around our factory here in Barnsley, if you’d like to meet the team and take a look at how we do things here at Wybone, give us a call on 01226 35233 or send us an email to
