The Welsh Ambulance Service has adopted the philosophy required by the Welsh Government in that a zero tolerance approach to Healthcare Associated Infections is embedded in daily work practices.

Infection prevention and control is the responsibility of every member of our staff, especially those treating and facing patients. We are committed and ensure that you are exposed to a clean, safe and modern environment, thus ensuring the highest standards of infection prevention and control at all times.

In addressing the prevention of infections, such as clostridium difficile, MRSA and norovirus, we follow strict policies and procedures.

We are moving towards  a system of 'Make Ready' throughout Wales.  Our first Make Ready Depot is situated in the North and has been up and running since October 2012.  This newly introduced system is where  all our vehicles in that particular area used for treating patients are regularly cleaned by dedicated teams.
