National Average Cleaning Time Guide (NACT) (SHFN 01-04)

Published on 01 April 2021

From: Health Facilities Scotland

Scottish Health Facilities Note 01-04 is a user guide for the NACT system which creates a database of cleaning times.



The National Average Cleaning Time (NACT) system was created as a replacement for the Lothian Tool. Both systems aimed to provide domestic services with information on required cleaning times and resources based on the size of an area and the items that were within the given area. The NACT system has been built on the same IT platform as the Facilities Monitoring Tool (FMT) and can therefore share a large proportion of information on the NHS Scotland estate pertinent to Domestic Services.
