These are unprecedented times for the healthcare sector. Deficit levels within the NHS are the highest they have ever been, whilst funding gaps and spending constraints have put even greater pressure on the service.

Priority for Hospitals and Healthcare practices is, and will always be, providing the highest level of patient care possible but this must now be done whilst further managing costs and efficiencies.

Whilst saving money is crucial to the healthcare sector, it is important to remember that there is strict compliance around hazardous and non-hazardous waste. Waste must be properly segregated and should be correctly packaged and labelled ready for transit. Legal compliance paperwork must be completed correctly, and the waste must be stored and contained appropriately.

This places greater need on the healthcare sector to partner with suppliers that can offer long-term waste management solutions that will reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, and increase levels of sustainability & compliance.

The new NHS Clinical waste strategy places an increased focus on sustainable waste management. There is great emphasis on the need to reduce waste in the first instance, whilst also implementing circular economy principles.

Following guidance from the Healthcare Technical Memorandum (HTM) 07-01, we work in partnership with NHS Trusts and Healthcare Practices to develop a comprehensive waste optimisation program covering every aspect of waste disposal. The waste optimisation program is designed to achieve the outcomes:

  • Cost reduction
  • Reduction in waste volumes
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions through reuse, recycling & more sustainable waste processing methods
  • Diversion from landfill
  • Improved efficiency
  • Improved level of waste compliance
  • Improved safety
