Water Hygiene Masterclass 2019

Armitage Shanks are teaming up with Pall Medical for a second year of water hygiene Masterclasses. 

Each masterclass will include discussions on the latest thinking of managing the safe delivery of water in healthcare premises and beyond featuring the top professionals in their field.

These classes are aimed at anyone involved in specifying and managing healthcare facilities – particularly in clinical settings. We will explore the issues, specific case studies, relevant research and practical solutions.

There will be a class in June 2019 in the South East and in October 2019 in Glasgow.
