- Surgery Cleaning Services

Inter County Cleaning Services Ltd is your perfect option, we are more than capable of performing to the Care Quality Commission’s National Specification for Cleanliness standards.

Inter County Cleaning Services Ltd offers a personalised healthcare cleaning plan and service to help you prepare for CQC registration Care Quality Commission was set up to ensure patients received a very good standard of care across all areas of the NHS. They have set out some very detailed guidelines explaining what standards should be maintained and have even gone as far as to say how these should be achieved.

These guidelines are then audited and monitored by various CQC appointed inspectors.

The CQC remit is very wide ranging and this is leading to a degree of confusion, and interpretation, especially in certain areas such as DBS/DS Checking and Infection Control. One thing that is not in doubt is that to be able to continue to practice it is necessary for all surgeries to registered.

We are conversant with the requirements and will ensure that your establishment will be able to comply with the CQC’s ongoing monitoring system.

The specifications have four main aims,
1. To assist providers in making sure that risks for infection are reduced significantly during the delivery of services
2. To provide a good framework that will allow cleaning services to be arranged effectively.
3. To make sure that the appropriate documentation is being provided that proves how medical processes are being managed.
4. To emphasise that cleaning is a shared responsibility that does not just involve the cleaning team.
