ANTT Patient Protection Accreditation Programme

We are delighted to announce that Clifton Park 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 Elena Pullen, Infection Control Lead and the ANTT® assessor team for this achievement.
