BICSc Award for our domestics teams


Members of the facilities team at the BICSc Awards

Congratulations to the Facilities team for their BICSc award win on Thursday 30 September.

2gether is leading the UK in hospital cleanliness standards, thanks to our partnership with British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc). In the annual awards, 2gether won the ‘commitment to BICSc training and assessment within healthcare’ award.

Trudy Gleeson, Director of Facilities Solutions, said:

“I’m absolutely delighted for everyone across the facilities team who have worked so hard through the pandemic to achieve this award. In a time where cleaning was never so critical, the team continued with BICSc training to ensure standards are kept high in the hospitals of East Kent. It’s well deserved.”

2gether has worked with BICSc on a range of NHS compliant cleaning skills, which have been adapted from the Institute’s long-established Cleaning Professional’s Skills Suite. The training that employees undergo includes a number of skills such as knowledge of the ‘clean to dirty’ prioritisation technique (starting with the cleanest area first and moving on to the heavily soiled to reduce risk of cross infection) and colour coding protocols to ensure the correct equipment and materials are used in appropriate areas.
