Waste Management Consultation

Closed 17 Feb 2020

Opened 22 Jan 2020


It is an exciting time to be a Waste manager in the NHS!

As part of our ongoing work to improve waste services, our team is working to create the NHS waste strategy. The first element of this strategy (Part A) will set out our ambitions for clinical waste services, empowering staff, ensuring compliance and driving forward innovation. Undoubtedly you, as a NHS Waste manager, will play a crucial part in ensuring we are able to successfully deliver the proposed changes and drive forward transformative change.

We also want to ensure that you are supported to deliver these changes and to ensure your organisation remains compliant. Currently, we have very little information about you. This makes it difficult for us to establish what support might be needed, to structure training programmes for you or to provide you with support your professional development.

We would therefore like to ask you to complete this online survey. The survey has been developed and tested by Wastes managers, for Waste managers in order to help us at the centre get a better idea of the current gaps in areas such as training and organisational support, so we can implement changes tailored to best support you in your role.

The survey should take you around 45 minutes to complete (not short we understand)! But we hope it will give us everything we need to support you moving forward.

Thank you for taking the time to help us structure this important piece of work.
