Derbyshire Branch helps Clients Prepare for CQC Registration
Friday 22nd June 2012 11:00 AM
John Mills, director at Minster Cleaning Services Derbyshire, is working with primary care medical clients to help them prepare for forthcoming Care Quality Commission (CQC) registration and ongoing compliance monitoring requirements relating to cleanliness and infection control.
By agreeing and delivering a dedicated cleaning plan based on the 'National Specifications for Cleanliness in the NHS: Primary Care Medical and Dental Premises', the branch is able to help medical practices meet the relevant 'essential standards of quality and safety' that they will be monitored against, in particular regulation 12 and its associated outcome 8.
As part of the service, the branch provides primary care medical clients with regular cleaning audits and inspections to ensure high standards are maintained. This provides ongoing peace of mind, especially when practices fall under CQC compliance monitoring from April 2013 onwards.
Peartree Medical Centre in Derby has been a valued client of Minster Cleaning Services since 2004. Mike Newbold, Practice / Business Manager comments,
"Over the last nine months, we have worked closely with Minster Cleaning Services to develop a Cleaning Plan which will dovetail with our infection control procedures and also provide a systematic approach to the specification, monitoring and reporting of all our surgery cleaning needs.
Minster Cleaning Services has taken the lead in this and has provided me with the reassurance that our surgery will be well placed to demonstrate CQC compliance with the cleanliness and infection control related requirements of the essential standards of quality and safety."
