Clinical Assurance

ARHAI Scotland’s Clinical Assurance programme provides clinical and infection prevention and control (IPC) expertise to complement the work undertaken by the NHSScotland’s Assure (NHSSA) assurance service. More information about the programme and a list of tools and guidance developed is available.

Key Stage Assurance Reviews (KSAR) focus on ensuring infection prevention and control is a key consideration for healthcare construction projects.  ARHAI Scotland have developed notes for NHS Board IPC Teams which aim to help navigate this process.    

Below is an educational animation which focuses on clinical hand wash basins (CHWBs), their intended purpose, water associated infection risks, and what we all can do together to reduce this risk. The animation is supported by a poster for use beside CWHBs to locally promote good practice for health and care staff as well as the general public who may visit those settings.
