The National standards of healthcare cleanliness 2021

The National standards of healthcare cleanliness 2021

“The National standards of healthcare cleanliness 2021 (the national standards) apply to all healthcare settings – acute hospitals, mental health, community, primary care, dental care, ambulance trusts, GP surgeries and clinics, and care homes, regardless of the way cleaning services are provided. They provide a common understanding of what it means to be a clean healthcare setting and give healthcare organisations in England a framework for detailing the required cleaning services and how ‘technical’ cleanliness and the efficacy of the cleaning process should be assessed. They replace the National specifications for cleanliness in the NHS 2007 (and amendments) published by the National Patient Safety Agency, and the Healthcare cleaning manual, revised by the Association of Healthcare Cleaning Professionals (AHCP) in 2013. Together with the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated regulations, these provide an assurance framework to support compliance with the core cleanliness standard and the code of practice.”
