Response:

What cleaning methods does the Trust use for room and theatre disinfection? We scrub/dry the theatres daily and damp dust using Tristal after the theatre staff have cleaned any bodily fluids.

 

We use New Cheshire an external company who wash the walls and domestic services will prepared them prior to be cleaned.

 

We use HPV fogging machines by Glossair and Bioquell machines.
