The Romanian Government are mandating ANTT nationally

ANTT is usually adopted across a country quite steadily through individual requests from health care organisations and individuals. Whilst this is great testimony to the simplicity and effectiveness of ANTT, national level initiatives support by Government are usually a bit quicker! and benefit more patients more immediately.


We are very happy to support Governments plan national ANTT initiatives and look forward to supporting Romanias desire to minimise healthcare infection and support its healthcare system.


Governments wishing to enquire about similar initiatives should just get in touch.

ANTT® Confirmed as the standard

aseptic technique in the NHS

The Association for Safe Aseptic Practice (ASAP) performed a survey of all NHS Trusts in England & Scotland using the Freedom of Information Process. NHS Trusts were asked to report on the requirements of the Health & Social Care Act 2008/2015, regards having a single standard aseptic technique, demonstrable by education, training, assessment and audit. 


Findings

92% of Trusts in England and 100% in Scotland responded to the information request. 88% of NHS Trusts in England stipulated ANTT as being their single standard aseptic technique and in Scotland 56%. This increased to 73% when ANTT was included in combination with another aseptic technique. 


NHS Trusts that implemented ANTT were shown to have improved clinical governance of aseptic technique with higher prevalence of education, training, assessment and auditing of standards.

A new ANTT® Procedure Guideline for Port-A-Cath access



We have enjoyed working with the legendary Vascular Access Team at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Hospital Trust - on a new ANTT Procedure Guideline for Port-A-Cath insertion. 


Sarah Melville, Adam Grosvenor and Gemma Reid attended an online ANTT Rapid Clinic with us to discuss whether the procedure should be Surgical-ANTT or Standard-ANTT. Following a practical demonstration by the team the consensus was for a  Surgical-ANTT approach.
