The National Estates and Facilities team at NHS England is responsible for producing standards and guidance for the NHS estate and ensuring that the information and guidance they contain remains up-to-date and relevant for users.
NHS Estates Technical Bulletins (NETBs) enable updated guidance to be passed to local systems, ensuring we maintain our focus on patient safety. NETBs contain technical guidance and standards which systems and organisations are required to consider and implement, where applicable. Boards are responsible for their assessment and application to their organisations.
