The Hospital Environment & Waste Manager – June 2016 Issue

Welcome to the June 2016 edition of the HE&WM newsletter, the newsletter of the EU-HCWM project. We are now moving into the final 6 month period of the project. We are currently working on an exploitation plan for the project out-puts and also trying to increase the number of professional networks associated with the project. In addition we are also developing the e-learning platform which will facilitate online access to the training programme and where rele-vant the vocational qualification. More detail on all of this in the summer newsletter.

As is the tradition with these projects they normally culminate in a final conference and we are no different. We are currently planning this event and are working towards a conference in association with the NHS National Performance Advisory Group on Waste in Birmingham on 10 November this year. We will provide full details of the venue and the agenda in the summer newsletter which will be published in the first week of August.

In this issue we reflect on latest project partners meeting in Italy as well as looking forward to the next meeting on 4th and 5th July in Warsaw. We also report on some of the HCWM initiatives of the partners in both Albania and the UK.

In this issue:

  • Project Co-ordination Meetings — Reggio Emelia, Italy
  • Latest Industry News
  • Sharps Safety
  • ISWA HCWM Conference Review
  • NHS NPAG Update
  • HCWM Albania
  • Professional Networks

We hope you enjoy this month’s issue.
