As of 13 December, no National Health Service trusts with remaining contacts in place with Healthcare Environment Services are reporting that they are continuing to receive their scheduled clinical waste collections from Healthcare Environmental Services. Contingency arrangements are in place for each of the affected trusts. An optional extension in the Mitie contract has been exercised, which will allow all affected trusts to access a replacement clinical waste collection service, should they choose to do so.
