Sodexho Healthcare is a major provider of support services to the NHS, with emphasis on acute and primary care providers. Sodexho Healthcare currently has contracts with NHS hospitals to manage the storage, collection and removal of clinical, general and hazardous waste from site.
EMS Ltd successfully carried out a full review of waste management operations and associated environmental impacts for Sodexho Healthcare in a large NHS hospital recently awarded foundation status. As a result of the success of the review EMS Ltd conducted three more waste management reviews of Sodexho Healthcare operations at NHS hospitals across the UK.
The reviews identified, and assessed compliance with, all applicable waste and environmental legislation, policy requirements and recognised best practice relevant to Sodexho Healthcare waste management operations at client sites. The reviews made recommendations to rectify all identified issues of non-compliance with said requirements.
Using the results of the waste management reviews, EMS Ltd worked closely with Sodexho Healthcare to develop a Sodexho Healthcare Waste Management Policy for implementation across the entire portfolio of Sodexho Healthcare waste management operations.
Commenting on the level of service received from EMS Ltd Mr David Whittall, Sodexho Health & Hygiene Advisor, stated:
"...EMS Ltd have contributed significantly to our waste management policy and procedures, giving clear, relevant and compliant advice and assisted in the designing of a range of bespoke systems and procedures including action planning, to ensure that Sodexho Healthcare is fully compliant with client requirements and legislation applicable to healthcare waste streams."
