Bug Busters is AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust’s infection prevention schools project with Nuffield Health Hospital Bournemouth.

Nuffield Health Hospital Bournemouth’s Bug Busters initiative will see player ambassador Simon Francis working alongside Nuffield Health infection prevention expert Chris Tickner and head of the Trust Steve Cuss to educate school children about preventing the spread of germs and bacteria.

“We are so delighted has chosen to support Nuffield Health Bournemouth’s Bug Busters initiative for local schools,” Nuffield Health Hospital Bournemouth Director David Mcnair said.

"We know he has thousands of young fans out there who will be very inspired by what he has to say, which will be critical in educating children about how to stop the spread of infection.”

“I’m over the moon to be associated with such an important initiative and pleased to be working with Nuffield Health Hospital Bournemouth to make a difference in the local area,” Francis added.

“I really enjoy getting out on the road with Chris and the Bug Busters team, and I really hope I can help make a difference throughout the scheme.”

The Bug Busters programme provides local schools with a series of free workshops and interactive football games focussed on how to prevent germs and bacteria spreading and causing sickness, which can greatly impact on a child’s performance at school.
