Fears over waste station
A company which collects clinical waste from hospitals across Scotland is said to be facing crisis.
North Lanarkshirebased Healthcare Environmental Services, which has a transfer station for waste in Dundee, previously lost contracts from NHS Trusts in England after it emerged large amounts of human waste, including amputated limbs, had built up at five sites. A criminal inquiry was launched and now the company says it will lose its NHS Scotland contract in April. It is not yet known how jobs in Dundee will be affected.
