We win Hospital Cleaning Award

Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust (SCFT) won the Hospital Cleaning Award at the Health Business Awards in London.

Patients expect hospitals to be clean. This award acknowledges the efforts made by SCFT in recent years to raise standards in cleanliness and reduce the risk of hospital acquired infections.

The cleaning and housekeeping department of SCFT continues to consistently maintain high standards. The team is recognised both internally and externally for the hard work and dedication towards cleaning. This year’s Patient Led Assessment of the Care Environment (PLACE) ‘Cleaning Scores’ achieved 98.93 per cent across the 11 community hospitals inspected – the third consecutive year the cleaning scores have been above the national average.

Peter Prentice, SCFT, Strategic Director of Estates and Facilities, said “This is fantastic recognition for the hard work and commitment of our facilities staff to provide clean environments for both our patients and staff, and to improve the experience of care.”
