NHS Lanarkshire hospitals among cleanest in Scotland 

New report shows continual improvement in the cleanliness standards 


The latest NHSScotland figures are available at www.hfs.scot.nhs.uk  

NHS Lanarkshire’s hospitals are among the cleanest in Scotland according to a new report.

The latest figures show NHS Lanarkshire achieved 96.5 per cent compliance with the NHSScotland National Cleaning Services Specification.

This is an increase from 94.8 per cent in the previous report issued in August 2009.

David Browning, general manager of NHS Lanarkshire’s Property and Support Services Department, said: “These figures demonstrate all the new healthcare associated infection related initiatives and commitment by domestic services staff in improving cleanliness standards within NHS Lanarkshire healthcare premises are paying off.

“We’ve seen continual improvement in the cleanliness standards within our healthcare premises and will continue our efforts to ensure a high standard of cleanliness is maintained and improved upon.”

All three of NHS Lanarkshire’s acute hospitals have achieved improved scores in their cleaning performance from the previous figures.

Monklands Hospital improved from 92.9 per cent in the first quarter (April – June 2009) to 95.7 per cent in the second quarter (July to September); Hairmyres Hospital improved from 96.3 per cent to 97.4 per cent; and Wishaw General Hospital improved from 97 per cent to 97.6 per cent.
