Vehicle Cleaning

The Trust uses biocidal cleaning products for all our vehicles, these products kill many germs including MRSA, Clostridium difficile (Cdiff), Norovirus and flu.

Vehicles are routinely cleaned by our front-line staff following transfer of a patient. This includes cleaning all equipment used and the stretcher/chair the patient was transferred on.

Within every 35-day period, all front-line vehicles which include emergency ambulances and Patient Transport Service vehicles are scheduled for a full deep clean.

To ensure patients are cared for in a clean environment, spot checks around the cleanliness of our vehicles are carried out each month. You can view the Vehicle Audit Form.
