Fire Safety Systems for the NHS Framework
The NHS Oversight Framework is described as a focal point for joint work, support and dialogue between NHS England and NHS Improvement, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), providers and sustainability and transformation partnerships, and integrated care systems. It is one of the elements of the NHS Framework which drives improvement in public health services and monitors statistical outcomes nationwide.
Guidance on Fire Safety for the NHS is provided by the Department of Health in its Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 05-03. This HTM states that: “The primary remit of healthcare providers with regard to fire safety is the protection of patients, visitors and health service staff from the effects of fire. For the application of effective fire precautions in healthcare premises, healthcare organisations will need to select a combination of measures to produce a fire-safe design.”
Fire protection and control needs to cover risks across a range of different healthcare environments. For instance, the HTM instructs that:
“Appropriate fire detection should be installed in plantrooms, medical gas manifold rooms and readyuse medical gas cylinder stores in healthcare premises provided with an automatic fire detection system.”
