Cleanevent break new ground

Cleanevent, part of the Spotless Group of companies and the specialist cleaners in the Sports, Leisure and Entertainment sectors, have just completed their first cleaning contract with Nuffield Health at the Cambridge Hospital, representing a major breakthrough for their UK business.

The Cambridge Hospital, operated by Nuffield Health as one of their 31 private hospitals in the UK, was built on land purchased by the great art philanthropist Charles Morland Agnew from Trinity College Cambridge in 1921, and acquired by Nuffield in 2003. The hospital has 46 beds and four operating theatres,  accommodating the practices of 200 consultants. The hospitals main speciality is the treatment of cancer care and they have recently been awarded the Macmillan Quality Environment Mark for Cancer Care Facilities.

The work carried out by the team from Cleanevent included the highly specialised cleaning of the two operating suites and recovery rooms. Ian Stewart, the Theatre Services Manager for Nuffield Cambridge Hospital, reported that post cleaning air sampling revealed the hospital had recorded random air slit samples to have outstanding results, with a Bacterial count of less than half the acceptable levels and a zero Pathogen count. “A remarkable result considering the extent and nature of the maintenance works carried out prior to the clean”. This vitally important work was carried out to the very highest standard and we are delighted to nominate Cleanevent as an approved supplier to Cambridge, and wish you well in gaining further hospitals in 2012. I will certainly pass on my recommendation to my Theatre Manager colleagues”.

Colin Caulfield, Cleanevent Chief Operating Officer, commented, “Spotless are one of the largest providers to the healthcare industry in Australia, and as part of the Group, we are delighted to have won our first contract in this sector in the UK, especially one as prestigious as Nuffield Health”.
