As you may have seen in national media coverage, our waste management company is having difficulties destroying NHS clinical waste at this time.

We were made aware of this issue and have put in place contingency arrangements, which would enable us to protect patient services in the event of a disruption to waste collections.  At the current time we are continuing with the contracted service so these contingencies are not in use.

At the current time they are continuing with their contracted service with us so these contingencies are not in use presently.

Please be assured that providing safe and effective care is always our primary concern and this continues to be the case. All our services will be running as normal during this period, if you are a patient, you will not see any disruption to services.
