    Dear Brains Trust,

    We are looking at changing our dressing packs to include sterile gloves with 1 pair of forceps instead of the traditional dressing pack with 3 pairs of forceps.

    I am aware that a number of NHS trusts have implemented this practise of sterile gloves over forceps.

    Have any of your hospitals implemented this practise?

    Just email me and thank you in advance for your advice.

    Kind regards,

    Holly
