PR Campaigns: consumer advice from an friendly, and expert, face!

The Hygiene Doctor has been at the forefront of a number of hygiene campaigns covering a range of topics from dirty desks to healthy hands. Whatever the topic she is able to cut through the jargon and present the information to the general  public in a way that is easy to understand without being to frightening.

The links below show examples of a number of her recent campaigns; if you would like to speak to the Hygiene Doctor about fronting your next hygiene campaign, please contact us today.

Innovate Services Lunch Box Amnesty

We send our children off to school every day with a, hopefully,  nutritious packed lunch, but are we also sending them off with some nasty bugs in their boxes?

Innovate Services worked with Dr Lisa to look at the contents of our lunch, and also what might lurk on the inside of our lunch boxes.

Jeyes Fluid Garden Hygiene Study

As summer finally arrived in 2013 The Hygiene Doctor and her expert team went out into the gardens of England to see if there were any hygiene hazards there. The results showed that the food preparation areas on your BBQ might actually contain more germs that your toilet seat!

Lec Fridge Study

Refrigeration company Lec commissioned Dr Lisa to study what we really keep in our fridge, and also to expose some common fridge myths. The results were not for the faint hearted!

Dettol Garden Play Study

A champion of hygiene, the Hygiene Doctor is also very keen to ensure that we don’t stop living full lives because we are taking hygiene to the extreme. The Dettol study showed an alarming rise in sedentary activities for children, as parents are too afraid to simply let them go out and play.
