Resources to support the workforce in gaining knowledge and skills to prevent and control the potential risks posed by healthcare facilities and promote a culture of life-long learning, continuous improvement and improved patient safety

Welcome

The resources on this site have been co-produced by NHS Education for Scotland and NHS Scotland Assure, established to be an internationally recognised national centre for reducing risks in the healthcare built environment and ensuring healthcare facilities are safe, fit for purpose, cost effective and capable of delivering sustainable services over the long term.  In this context, risks refer to those commonly associated with service systems, that is, the provision of water and drainage, air ventilation, electricity, fire prevention and medical gases, with infection prevention and control as a consideration for each.

They are intended to:

  • support learning and development for this diverse multi-agency and multi professional staff group including clinical, estates and facilities staff
  • support the workforce in gaining the knowledge and skills to prevent and control the potential risks posed by healthcare facilities and promote a culture of life-long learning, continuous improvement and improved patient safety

The Healthcare built environment learning zone contains the following resources :    

    - Learning and development strategy

    - Knowledge and skills framework

    - Senior leadership development 

    - Other resources and links
