Cleanliness in hospitals is about more than just keeping the place clean.

Working 24 hours a day, every day throughout the year, our domestic services team provides cleaning services for every area throughout both of our hospital sites. This includes public areas and offices, through to the cleaning of our operating theatres and ward areas.
