Training healthcare waste managers better

A new Europe-wide project has been launched to improve waste management in healthcare.

The NHS Confederation is a “partner” in a multi-country project, the European Healthcare Waste Management Project (EHWMP), which is developing a qualification in healthcare waste management, delivered through on the job training, which will have Europe-wide currency. By encouraging correct triage, treatment and disposal of waste, we can improve patient and staff safety, cut costs and protect the environment.
