Mitie recognised for hospital cleaning partnership

Mitie has won an award from the Association of Healthcare Cleaning Professionals (AHCP) for “Working in Partnership” with Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Trust after a team from Mitie’s FM business was nominated for the award in an independent patient survey.

MITIE was nominated alongside three NHS Trusts, but stood out for implementing a number of initiatives to improve standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

PaulineLewin, Chief of Infrastructure and Development for Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust said: “The cleanliness of our hospitals is something which patients and visitors notice straightaway and, quite rightly, we are judged on our performance in this respect. It’s really encouraging to see the AHCP recognise the joint efforts from our staff at the Trust and the MITIE team. We hope this, along with the fantastic survey results, will help reassure patients about the standards they can expect when coming into one of our hospitals.”
