Following a comprehensive tender competition for both Solent NHS Trust and Southern Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Veolia and Medisort have been awarded the contract for the supply of a specialist collection, recycling and disposal service for all the waste generated for both Trusts.
The contract is a 3 years + 2 (optional) covering over 250 locations throughout Hampshire, with Medisort specialising in all the healthcare clinical waste.
Andy Higgins Sales & Marketing Director says “it was a long hard process and I am extremely proud of a great team effort from both Veolia and Medisort. We have demonstrated two individual companies can combine to provide the NHS with a bespoke service for all their waste. Both companies have shown a great understanding of the issues facing Healthcare in the community. This was demonstrated in practice by Medisort commissioning further development of our IT systems to enhance our capabilities, showing we are in a fantastic position as future demand grows.”
