"As a group of experienced medics who are involved in the education of medical students, we wanted to be able to teach and assess hand hygiene in our curriculum. We also wanted to be able to integrate it into all of our clinical teaching.
What we learned at the training provided by Medical Audits was an in depth understanding of hand hygiene and how to teach not only the skill but also the evidence and rationale.
This is invaluable when teaching healthcare students and staff."

"We used the services of Medical Audits to carry out a full audit of our ISO13485 quality system and processes. This was the first time we used them and the entire process was very professional and the feedback / reports provided were very detailed and provided assurances of our systems.
The auditor was very knowledgeable and the software used to carry out the audit was extensive and provided all the key information required.
The supporting documentation received after the audit was excellent and will be critical when providing evidence to our Notified Body. Will be more than happy to use their services again."
