Muslim doctors and nurses are to be allowed to opt out of strict hygiene rules introduced by the NHS to restrict the spread of hospital superbugs.
Female staff who follow the Islamic faith will be allowed to cover their arms to preserve their modesty despite earlier guidance that all staff should be "bare below the elbow".
The Department of Health has also relaxed rules prohibiting jewellery so that Sikh members of staff can wear bangles linked with their faith, providing they are pushed up the arm while the medic treats a patient.
The Mail on Sunday reported the change had been made after female Muslims objected to being required to expose their arm below the elbow under guidance introduced by Alan Johnson when he was health secretary in 2007.
The rules were drawn up to reduce the number of patients who were falling ill, and even dying, from superbugs such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile. Revised guidance which relaxed the requirements for some religions was published last month.

Actual insanity and madness.
What happens if a patient refuses care from such a person? Rhetorical question.
If there are a sufficient number of such care givers it will render the entire attempt a failure.
NHS is fifth biggest employer in world
The NHS is the fifth biggest employer in the world, according to new research, making it bigger than Indias railways and Chinas state-owned energy network.
Barrys hoping to be bigger(plus more guns, ammo, and muslims)
Next it’ll be they can continue to use oils instead of soap and water.
The religious folks mentioned in this report should let their patients know they are putting patients at risk.
And, of course this means that Christians can wear crucifixes, right? /s
This PC crap and Dhimmitude is going to get a lot of people killed
Damn. I hope they all realize they don’t have to stay here.
And don’t take oblunder’s word for it, muslims have never done anything to help build this nation.
Use every freedom of speech and freedom of religion clause to infiltrate, deball and weaken the law.
And it's happening right under our nose.
“”I hope they all realize they dont have to stay here.””
I believe the story is from the UK but will be here soon!!!
Medical personnel hygiene is actually a tricky subject.
For years now, it has been known that physicians neckties are incredibly dirty, and their sleeves close behind, which is why they mentioned sleeveless.
If hands are cleaned of obvious contamination, alcohol hand sanitizer (between 60-85% alcohol) is the gold standard as antiseptic; but there are now room temperature “plasma gas” sanitizer boxes that work just as well and faster. The gas penetrates all the nooks and crannies, including under the nails.
Their heads are chopped off.
If “Kathy & Krew” try this here I’m gonna get a different doctor. One that truly cares about my health and his health.
So religious belief is now a contamination preventative?
So now patients will acquire Sikh Sickness?
