Improving cleanliness and reducing risk
Healthcare patients and workers are often vulnerable to cross infection. That's why they deserve support from dedicated people who understand their needs. At ISS, we have embodied this understanding within our motto: People Serving People. It speaks volumes about how our people work tirelessly to provide clean environments and help safeguard your patients.
Since 1984, ISS has grown to become the leading provider of facility services for the National Health Service. Today, our team of 14,500 people focus exclusively on making environments cleaner and more pleasant for healthcare organisations nationwide.
Obsessive about cleanliness
More than ever, the public and healthcare providers are seeking clean environments that minimise risks to patients. Media focus on Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) such as MRSA and Clostridium Difficile has created unprecedented demand for hospital cleanliness. Thanks to our leading position in technological developments, we have:
- Created a unique total healthcare cleaning system that combines microfibers with modern laundry systems, embracing steam and ozone technology
- Participated in the 'Deep Clean Programme' for existing and new clients
- Introduced fully equipped mobile-response units for smaller establishments, outreach centres and surgeries.
Keeping up to date with standards
Our quality results depend on the expertise of our staff. So every member of our teams undergoes a full induction programme before starting work. This includes detailed training on such essential concerns as infection control. Additionally, our staff must comply with all local policies relating to reducing risk.
Trust in an award-winning provider
Through our attention to detail and commitment to the healthcare sector, we have won many Golden Service Awards for the 'Best Cleaned Hospitals' in such establishments as the Victoria Hospital in Blackpool and the Royal Marsden Hospital in London.
