Bacteria in Unit Water Lines can cause infection
With patients and surgery staff regularly exposed to water from aerosols used during treatment, failure to ensure that Dental Unit Water Lines (DUWL) are clean can cause contamination, risk spreading infection and may be a breach of Health and Safety Guidelines.
The Health and Safety Commission's requirements, as recorded in “The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems - Approved Code of Practice and Guidance” states that all Dentists must identify and assess sources of risk and implement a scheme for preventing and controlling that risk.
Are you taking the necessary precautions to avoid contamination risk?

Don’t get caught out, it’s your responsibility.

Natasha Fletcher Weight Management Consultant
I work with overweight and obese individuals who are serious about permanently losing weight and leading a healthier lifestyle.
Despite good intentions, it can be difficult to make the lifestyle changes needed to lose weight. I work closely with individuals to encourage sustainable lifestyle changes. I help with diet, nutrition and exercise and provide support to overcome the challenges of weight-loss.
I help uncover psychological and emotional issues linked to weight gain and identify the causes of weight problems. This helps clients feel happier, more balanced and more confident. As a result, they are able to take control of their diet and lifestyle.
I also provide a “Simple Steps” weight-management programme for children to encourage a good diet, and exercise-related activities for a healthy lifestyle.
My clients are delighted with the positive changes they have made. They have successfully lost weight, formed a new relationship with food and adopted a healthier lifestyle. They feel fitter and have a deeper understanding about the causes of their weight gain.
An initial 45-minute consultation is free. To see how I can help you, please contact me. I would be delighted to hear from you.
