Medical Audits - Supporting Scotland’s ‘safer, more effective care’ strategy

Ensuring Safer More Effective Care – “Medical Audits supports the Plan Do Study / Check Act Cycle”

Health Protection Scotland (HPS)


In February 2015, Health Protection Scotland (HPS) published their Standards for Infection Control Precautions (SICPs).

These standards outline the 10 key elements to reducing the risks of infection for patients in all healthcare settings in Scotland and are relevant in any care environment.

Standards for Infection Control Precautions


The SICPs is the first part of the National Infection Control Policy manual 2015 for NHS Scotland.

To assist with monitoring and supporting implementation to these standards at local level, audit tools have been developed.

These 10 elements include key standards aimed at reducing the risks of healthcare associated infection and ensuring safe effective care for all, regardless of the care area.

Medical Audits TS+ auditing system contains all these Scottish SIPCs standards and can help identify elements that need to be improved to help clinical teams ensure SICPs compliance.
