NHS waste firm loses con­tracts

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A CLIN­I­CAL waste dis­posal firm has been stripped of its NHS con­tracts after al­low­ing body parts to pile up at fa­cil­i­ties.

Health­care En­vi­ron­ment Ser­vices had “failed to demon­strate that they were op­er­at­ing within their con­trac­tual lim­its”.

Health Min­is­ter Stephen Bar­clay told MPs that 15 NHS trusts had served ter­mi­na­tion no­tices to HES, with the work be­ing taken over by Mi­tie.

In a state­ment to Par­lia­ment he said: “I can con­firm that NHS ser­vices con­tinue to op­er­ate as nor­mal.”
