Denise Hanson, Head of Technical Services at BICSc, said:
‘We would like to thank 2gether for their support and collaborative input with the content of this launch. The rollout of these skills will assist operatives in ensuring the infection risks posed by the delivery of services have been assessed, trained and understood.
‘The provision of a clean and safe healthcare environment remains a key priority. To assist with this, BICSc has considered the key elements for effective infection control which promotes patient confidence and demonstrates the existence of a positive safety culture.
‘Should this draft version be approved and published this year, it would bring NHS recommendations for colour coding (within cleaning areas) in line with the BICSc ethos for best practice & standards.’
