A private sector hospital group has completed the final phase of a revamp of its sterile services.

Nuffield Health has spent a total of £27 million on the developments, which have seen the rollout of a national network of six hospital sterile service units over a period of two years, Health Insurance and Protection Magazine reports.

According to the publication, Nuffield said this year that it will supply a total of 450,000 surgical instrument trays or 13 million instruments to Nuffield Health and other providers.

The new decontamination centres are based in Stoke on Trent, Tiverton, Warwick, Cambridge and Wetherby, with a further one to be opened at Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital.

As well as supplying services to Nuffield Health hospitals, the sterile services units will also provide decontamination assistance to other primary and secondary care providers, including dental practices and GP surgeries.

Established over 50 years ago, Nuffield Health operates more than 200 medical centres across the UK.
