The Trust do not use clinical waste bag ties, however the wards do buy printed tape to mark up waste bags/sharps bins so that it is identifiable where the waste was generated.

The wards do purchase this tape themselves through procurement.

 

The tape is marked up with the department to give us the traceability.

 

We have ordered 612 rolls in the last twelve months, and the supplier is Fastnet Tapes Ltd.

Name:   Louise Timms is our Procurement Manager.
