Albany Cleaning Solutions is a leading medical premises cleaning provider in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Bristol and throughout South Wales. We are trusted by healthcare providers to deliver quality cleaning services to GP surgeries, clinics, and other medical facilities in line with the National Standards for Cleaning in NHS Wales.
What are the National Standards for Cleaning in NHS Wales?
The National Standards for Cleaning in NHS Wales is a framework for which hospitals and Local Health Boards in Wales can set out details for providing cleaning services and assessing environmental cleanliness.
The document states, “the National Standards for Cleaning will apply to all NHS facilities in Wales where patient services are delivered. The Standards provide a framework that Local Health Boards can adapt to meet local requirements. These requirements will include the development of cleaning plans, training programmes and decisions about staffing, including who is accountable and takes responsibility for cleaning.
Improving Health in Wales identified a need for environmental cleanliness to be monitored through consistent auditing procedures on a national basis.” [source]
The Standards set out transparent processes for cleanliness, who the stakeholders are, and who is responsible for assessing the effectiveness of cleaning services. They also suggest minimum cleaning frequencies (which can be increased if considered necessary at a local level), guidance for the Standards to be achieved, the difference between cleaning and maintenance, and so much more.
