“Our work with the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust has enabled us to develop a strong understanding of its particular needs. Our commitment to meeting the NHS’ high standards has seen us invest in the latest equipment so that we can continue to deliver clean and safe environments for all patients and staff. ”

“We pride ourselves on our understanding of the NHS and we are looking forward to continuing to grow and develop our partnership, working with the Trust to improve process efficiency, introduce technology and improve service delivery.”
