“Keeping the hospital clean is an important role, and one we take extremely seriously. Our team work hard every day to deliver a hygienic and safe environment for patients, staff and visitors.   

“The supervisory team also make sure they are on hand throughout the day to provide support and advice to staff, and they provide a tailored training programme which ensures our housekeepers are multi-skilled.  

“We’re so proud of our Housekeeping Supervising Team, and of the contribution all our housekeepers are making to the Trust. To see the team being recognised in this way is really rewarding.”
