The new Royal London Hospital (RLH), part of Barts and the London NHS Trust and the UK’s biggest hospital, has partnered with Synergy Health for its hospital sterile services.

The now operational Synergy Health facility, housed within the new Royal London site will serve the hospital’s 23 on-site theatres; decontaminating and sterilising approximately five million surgical instruments each year. The facility will also be linked to the London Chest Hospital by lifts enabling rapid access between the two different parts of the hospital and with plans to provide services both on and off-site.

The company was selected by Capital Hospitals Limited as a key delivery partner alongside Skanska, Carilion, Siemens and Varian and is the continuation of a long relationship with the Trust where it has provided sterile services to St. Bartholomew and the London Chest hospital since May 2006.

Synergy Health is one of the first tenants in the new hospital after relocating its service from an interim facility at Wharf Road, Islington. The Islington site was built as a transitional, yet highly advanced and fully operational service that fulfilled all sterilisation requirements while the new RLH facility was being built. This was vital to ensuring sustained and consistent quality and efficiency and ensured the move posed no risk to patients. The final transition to the new site took place following the full accreditation of the unit.

The Trust will benefit from efficiency and quality enhancements enabled by Synergy Health’s state-of-the-art technology, equipment and specialist staff - many of whom were employed by Barts and the London NHS Trust from before services transferred to the Islington site in 2006. Training of new staff has taken up to 18 months and all staff at RLH undertook training for fire safety and the use of new equipment. NHS staff which transferred under TUPE included 33 technicians, five team leaders, six support staff and nine distribution staff who joined the Synergy team to bring the full unit complement to 60 The team operates a round-the-clock on-call service to support emergencies and major incidents. During the summer riots the team was able to scale up to ensure the Trust’s needs were met.

The Trust’s Medical Director Dr. Steve Ryan said: “Like all of our key delivery partners Synergy Health will play a critical role in ensuring the timely, quality and consistent delivery of its expert service. Sterile services are critical to ensuring our surgeons and other healthcare professionals can rely on having the tools of their trade available through a safe, timely and traceable service and where patient safety features top of all agendas. By being located so close to our theatres we expect the sterile services unit to be able to provide an unrivalled service to our staff and - most importantly - our patients.”

Synergy Health CEO UK and Ireland Adrian Coward adds: “We are delighted to have been chosen as a key delivery partner to provide sterile services through our best-in-class facility at this fantastic new hospital. We continually strive for mutual success based on trust, innovation and accountability and where we are focused on the needs of the hospital to deliver the utmost patient care at the best possible cost.

I am gratified to see the extreme efforts made by our staff to enable the transition to the new hospital with minimal disruption and which I know has involved many long hours! We look forward to working with the Trust to ensure that this flagship hospital continues to enjoy the reputation for which it is renowned.”

The new hospital plans to revolutionise the hospital experience for patients who will benefit from cutting edge facilities and standards of care to rival the best in Europe. The layout and facilities within the hospital have benefited from the input of clinicians to ensure they are able to provide safe and patient-focused clinical care. It will be completed by 2015.
