Infection Prevention

Providing a clean and safe environment for your patients and employees, and improving everyday outcomes, has never been more important. 

Going beyond simply cleaning

Our evidence-based approach to environmental infection prevention. Offering comprehensive cleaning and infection services that go further; integrating technology and processes, supported by specialists to safeguard your healthcare environment. We utilise our clinical science and global healthcare experience to inform our products, processes and frequencies. This means we are fully aligned to any and every risk category, in any and every healthcare setting.

How we work

  • Safeguard your healthcare environment from infections that can impact clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction, and the cost of care. 
  • Work with your team to adopt new training and operating procedures: increasing infection prevention efficacy, efficiency and outcomes. 
  • Strategic approach targeted on vulnerable locations within hospitals, types of procedures and tests, medical conditions present and equipment used. 
  • Tailor our services to your facility’s needs. 
  • Drive care improvements through a one-team, partnership-based approach. 
  • Create a culture of infection prevention and control. 
  • We go far beyond ‘visibly clean’ to maintain the highest service level standards.

Improving outcomes

As members of the Infection Prevention Society and the Association of Healthcare Cleaning Professionals, we help to shape new and innovative ways of working to support our clients.


Sodexo and the infection prevention and control team at Queen’s Hospital, Romford, became the first hospital team in the UK to use UV-C light machines to help keep patients safe from infection and as a result saw a 70% reduction in bacteria. 


In the US, our programme has been proven to reduce C.diff by 53% and MRSA by 70% and eliminate Covid-19 from surfaces.


We will work with you with the focus on reducing hospital related infection rates through consistent, outcome focussed cleaning service, deploying relevant products and processes appropriate for the risk level in each hospital environment.


By providing a wide suite of products and services, we enable a bespoke solution to meet all needs, whilst always of course working together to ensure compliance and alignment with National Standards of Healthcare Cleanliness.


All of our solutions are founded on our comprehensive training and development pathway for teams.

Right where you need us

As the industry moves into new territories and out of the traditional hospital setting, our services are constantly evolving to be available wherever you need us. We pride ourselves on being completely agile across all care delivery sites, including ambulatory settings, clinics, offices and retail hubs.


We will work with you to ensure compliance with the new National Standards of Healthcare Cleanliness at the heart of all we do. As well as CQC, PLACE, Trust service specifications and technical guidance.
