Health trust in England bans toys from clinics because of infection risk
Greater Manchester, England-based Trafford Primary Care Trust has removed toys from all of its clinics because of the risk of infection. It says following Department of Health guidelines prompted the decision to withdraw the "majority of toys," but one senior doctor said the move was "bureaucracy gone mad." The health trust told staff to get rid of toys and advised GPs to do the same because they fear they spread infections among children.
