ANTT Patient Protection Accreditation Programme

We are delighted to announce that Fitzwilliam Hospital & Boston West Hospital have achieved the Bronze accreditation for ANTT® Patient Protection Accreditation Programme for Healthcare Providers.

The 4 main principles of ANTT

ANTT is supported by evidence and highlights the key components involved in maintaining asepsis and aims to standardise practice.
•    Always wash hands effectively;
•    Never contaminate key parts;
•    Touch non-key parts with confidence;
•    Take appropriate infective precautions.
 The criteria for the award included having 30% percent of staff competency assessed and 50 audits completed in a 12 months period.

A huge thanks to Lynne Roberts Infection Control Lead and the ANTT® assessor team for this achievement.
