ANTT®: The Clinical Standard

for aseptic technique - Infusion

Standards 2024

We are delighted to see ANTT included as an Infusion Standard in the 2021 Infusion Standards. 

The INS Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice are a world renowned leader in providing clinical guidance based on graded evidence review. They are updated 3 yearly and this is hot off the press and will help inform related guidance globally.  

As in 2021 we had opportunity to help editorially with this edition and were in awe of the international expert editorial team. The amount of work this panel do in ensuring the Standards are as useful and effective as they are, is nothing less than extraordinary. 

A new ANTT® Procedure Guideline for Port-A-Cath access

We have enjoyed working with the legendary Vascular Access Team at Alder Hey Children’s NHS Hospital Trust - on a new ANTT Procedure Guideline for Port-A-Cath insertion. 

Sarah Melville, Adam Grosvenor and Gemma Reid attended an online ANTT Rapid Clinic with us to discuss whether the procedure should be Surgical-ANTT or Standard-ANTT. Following a practical demonstration by the team the consensus was for a  Surgical-ANTT approach.

ANTT® Confirmed as the standard

aseptic technique in the NHS

The Association for Safe Aseptic Practice (ASAP) performed a survey of all NHS Trusts in England & Scotland using the Freedom of Information Process. NHS Trusts were asked to report on the requirements of the Health & Social Care Act 2008/2015, regards having a single standard aseptic technique, demonstrable by education, training, assessment and audit. 


92% of Trusts in England and 100% in Scotland responded to the information request. 88% of NHS Trusts in England stipulated ANTT as being their single standard aseptic technique and in Scotland 56%. This increased to 73% when ANTT was included in combination with another aseptic technique. 

NHS Trusts that implemented ANTT were shown to have improved clinical governance of aseptic technique with higher prevalence of education, training, assessment and auditing of standards.
