National Hand Hygiene Campaign

The Scottish Government informed NHS Boards on 9 August 2013 that the current National Hand Hygiene Campaign will conclude on 25 September 2013 with the publication of the 27th bi-monthly hand hygiene report.

The zero tolerance approach to non-compliance with hand hygiene and monitoring and reporting arrangements will continue, but monitoring arrangements will change. From 1 October 2013 individual NHS Boards will be responsible for monitoring, quality assurance and reporting of local hand hygiene compliance data, with thGo to Scotland's National Hand Hygiene Campaign websitee latter being reported via the local Healthcare Associated Infection Reporting Templates (HAIRTs) to SGHSCD.

The information on the hand hygiene campaign has been archived but is available to view on the Wash your hands of them campaign website.
