The cleaning of hands by Yorkshire Ambulance Service staff caring for you is important; if you have not seen the staff member clean their hands then please remember “it’s OK to ask” the staff member to clean their hands.

To ensure patients are cared for in a manner designed to reduce the risk of cross-transmission of infections, hand hygiene audit compliance is carried out each month.

You can view the Audit Compliance Form.

The Trust actively works with members of the whole health economy to help reduce the risk of infections and cross-transmission of infections. Health economy partners include (but are not limited to) hospital trusts, primary care trusts, the Strategic Health Authority, the Health Protection Agency, the Department of Health and other UK NHS ambulance services.
