Poor hygiene in healthcare establishments such as hospitals, dentists, and GP surgeries can put people’s lives at risk. Infections can spread quickly throughout these areas with devastating consequences.
Healthcare environments have strict legislation surrounding the standards of hygiene that must be maintained. Providing a clean and safe environment ensures the risk to patients from healthcare associated infections is reduced to a minimum.
The Health Act 2006 code of practice places responsibility on NHS trusts to ensure that the local provision of the healthcare cleaning services is adequately resourced and clearly defined through a strategic cleaning plan which includes clear cleaning schedules and routines. The ability to demonstrate how, and to what standard, areas are kept clean is a key principle of the code of practice but it must not be to the detriment of service delivery.
AGS’ specialist healthcare cleaners understand the challenges faced in order to sustain a safe and hygienic environment and the cost implications that can arise from having beds unavailable. Working alongside healthcare institutions we provide specialised healthcare cleaning and disinfection services to successfully reduce the risk of infections and to help prevent and control any spread occurring.
AGS’ healthcare cleaning offers planned extensive deep cleaning and decontamination services.
These are available for entire wards to high risk theatre rooms. This is completed with minimal disruption and down time to your procedures. AGS also offers a 24 hour rapid response solution to healthcare organisations that have urgent requests for areas to be specially cleaned and disinfected rapidly. This ensures that these areas are able to function to full capacity extremely quickly.
AGS’s healthcare cleaning services cover surgeries in and around the North West region such as Manchester, Salford, Stockport, Altrincham, Wilmslow, Poynton, Macclesfield, and Cheadle, plus many more. Working in partnership with the Practice Mangers we agree and implement a health care cleaning plan that meets the needs of the practice and those required by the Care Quality commission (CQC). Regular training sessions on hygiene/standards of cleaning are delivered to our staff to ensure that they do not fall short of any procedures.
