NHS hospitals and services

Our inspections of NHS hospitals and services in Scotland currently focus on two key areas – ensuring hospitals are safe and clean and the care of older people in acute hospitals.

Healthcare Environment Inspectorate (HEI) - ensuring your hospital is safe and clean

The Healthcare Environment Inspectorate's focus is to reduce the risk of healthcare associated infection to patients. It does this by inspecting all NHS acute hospitals in Scotland against the NHS QIS Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI) Standards (2008).

Care of older people

Healthcare Improvement Scotland carries out a programme of inspections to provide assurance that the care of older people in acute hospitals is of a high standard.
