HTM Compliance Services

Home / Services / HTM Compliance Services

The Health Technical Memoranda (HTMs) is arguably the most important documents within the UK, providing comprehensive advice and guidance on the design, installation and operation of specialised building and engineering technology used within the delivery of healthcare, including hospital ventilation.

The focus of Health Technical Memorandum guidance remains on the healthcare-specific elements of standards, policies and up-to-date best practice. Applicable to new and existing sites, and for use at various stages throughout the whole building lifecycle, compliance with HTM 03-01 Specialised Ventilation for Healthcare Premises prevents the forming of bacteria in hospital plant equipment.


Healthcare providers have a duty of care to ensure that appropriate governance arrangements are in place and are managed effectively. The Health Technical Memorandum series provides best practice engineering standards and policy to enable management of this duty of care and is a protocol that British Clinical Services adhere to stringently.

Our Core Services

Biological Safety Cabinets offer protection from microbiological contamination to the operator, environment and product. They are utilised by a range of scientific and research facilities within the commercial and non-commercial sectors, including clinical research, defence, education and general healthcare sectors.

Having the correct laminar air flow equipment in your cleanroom environment is very important, so British Clinical Services have worked hard to amass a quality selection of high-end equipment manufacturers for your needs.

Ductless fume hoods do not require any external ventilation. Instead, they use filters to capture solvent fumes from circulating air, which is then vented into the room. Ductless fume cabinets can maintain the same airflow as a standard vented fume hood but are easier to install as they do not require ventilation ducts.

Contamination control and PCR process repeatability is simplified with a range of PCR Cabinets. Each PCR Cabinet we install provides filtered vertical laminar flow to purge the work area of contaminants between amplifications and during preparatory procedures.

All fume cupboards and ventilated enclosures should be monitored and serviced annually both for safety and compliance purposes but also to retain the efficiency of your units.

British Clinical Services offer comprehensive maintenance and servicing agreement for all makes and models of Fume Cupboards.
