AHCP recognises Sodexo at Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton as Outstanding
Sodexo's team at Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton was named the ‘Outstanding Team of the Year’ at the 2022 Association of Healthcare Cleaning Professionals (AHCP) Awards recently.
Sodexo's 106-strong team provides the soft services for the hospital's five main wards as well as the out-patients and mental health unit.
The title of Outstanding Team of the Year was awarded due to the team's continued excellence in service delivery which has helped two of the hospital's in-patient wards and its theatre receive gold level status accreditations as well as the dermatology department recently achieving clinical accreditation and a recent PISA (period of increased surveillance audit) infection control audit scoring 100%.
Throughout the pandemic, the team worked in close partnership with the Trust to ensure all guidelines were followed to minimise the spread of the virus, ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of patients, Trust staff and colleagues.
"The team at Queen Mary's continue to demonstrate our values every day, their commitment to delivering a high standard of service with patient experience at the heart is something we are extremely proud of,” says Philip Leigh, CEO Healthcare, Sodexo UK & Ireland.
"This award is well-deserved recognition from their industry peers and we can't thank them enough for their hard work, commitment and loyalty especially over the last few years where we have seen unprecedented pressure put on our clients in the NHS and all our colleagues who continued to work on the frontline of a pandemic."
Sodexo has been delivering services at Queen Mary's Hospital in Roehampton for the past 13 years.
