The role of Assurance in NHS Scotland

Published on 31 May 2021

The Assurance service aligns compliance with guidance and helps boards to demonstrate this at the key review stages of a build. This includes:

  • procurement through to construction
  • building operations
  • maintenance and decommissioning
  • providing assurance to boards and the Scottish Government.

The service will focus on new builds and major refurbishments within the estate. In addition, some projects identified as being complex due to the needs of patients using the facilities will be reviewed by this service.

NHS Scotland Assure will work with local Health Boards and their contractors to bring built environment professionals, infection prevention & control, and clinical colleagues together.
