Our Linen and Laundry framework launched earlier this year and includes a ‘lot’ dedicated to cleanroom laundry solutions.
A cleanroom is a controlled environment in which pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes and aerosol particles are filtered out, providing air that is as sterile as possible. Cleanrooms are typically used for manufacturing products in the pharmaceutical and medical industry, and are also used in hospital surgical areas to prevent the risk of contamination and to protect vulnerable immunocompromised patients, as well as in hospital pharmacies. Our Linen and Laundry framework provides access to cleanroom laundry solutions, including the processing (wash and finish) and transportation (collection and return) of cleanroom garments at the ISO classification specified by you. Customers can also purchase reusable coveralls, boots, goggles and mops.
Offering national coverage across multiple sites, the framework provides a compliant and streamlined route to market. Our pre-agreed simplified terms have been established in line with commercial best practice, giving you legal protection throughout the length of your contract.Customers are provided with a dedicated category manager and commercial lead who are available for advice and guidance throughout the process. We are also on hand to assist with supplier management, conducting regular review meetings and monthly KPI monitoring.
This year, we worked with Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Trust and the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre to develop a cleanroom specification tailored to their needs. Claire Macdougal, Buyer, at Wirral University Teaching Hospitals said:
The Trust’s objective was to procure a total rental service which would satisfy the requirements for best quality, best price and best service. We chose to use this framework as it provided both Trusts with a compliant route to market, which has not previously been available for laundered aseptic garments. The framework has provided both Trusts with a contract which meets our requirements at an affordable and fixed price
