Efficiency award nomination for Havering’s health trust
A scheme to save Havering’s NHS Trust money while improving services has been shortlisted for a national award.
Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) has been put forward for a Health Service Journal efficiency award along with its partners Synergy Health.
The judges were impressed by a scheme to reorganise the trust’s linen and sterilisation services by bringing in a third party provider.
Moving the linen service off the King George Hospital site at Goodmayes meant that the building could then be used to house other trust services.
A new flagship decontamination unit was also opened on the site, run by Synergy Health.

No staff lost their jobs, but were transferred to the new provider.
The trust says that the linen and sterilisation services have vastly improved and the changes have also led to cost savings of �1.35m a year.
