Laundry Solutions for the Healthcare Sector

01/05/2019 - 30/04/2023

Laundry Solutions is a free to access multi-lot framework and has been designed to meet the varying laundry and linen needs of NHS trusts, and offers customers access to a range of providers including laundry consultants. 

Laundry Solutions for the Healthcare Sector has been created to help NHS trusts meet the demands on their laundry and linen services.

The supply of linen to the NHS has changed over the last 30 years, with the majority of the work now outsourced. Variants include a PFI contract with an FM provider, Total Linen Management; Return to Sender, Linen Hire, In-House and Contractor.

This multi-lot framework agreement provides a compliant route to market for NHS organisations covering general laundry services for patients, theatre textiles and laundry consultancy.

  • Ensure capability of suppliers to meet minimum NHS requirements for decontaminating linen used in health and social care (HTM 01-04) and infection control industry regulations
  • Ensure capability in relation to quality and performance
  • Ability to undertake a further competition under the framework for local requirements
  • Reduce the procurement costs incurred across the NHS, in particular technical expertise
  • Opportunity to review the overall laundry service and drive innovation
  • Ongoing consideration for patient care and well-being
