For the third consecutive year, the Housekeeping team at Spire Manchester Hospital has been awarded the Gold CAP (Continuing Advancement Programme) Award. The accolade is a fantastic way to recognise and applaud the meticulous work that our Housekeeping team members demonstrate on a daily basis.
Throughout the pandemic, the team has adapted their routines, and stepped up their already-rigorous cleaning schedules to keep Spire Manchester's patients and staff safe. As a team now 22 strong, Housekeeping members have provided a blueprint for the rest of the hospital on cleanliness standards by implementing robust procedures, as well as training staff and management of key touchpoints.
Sharing their pride at scooping the award, Julie Barrett, Housekeeping Manager, Hopelyn McIntosh, Infection Prevention and Control Lead and Debbie Miller, Housekeeping Supervisor say, "The Housekeeping team are delighted to be awarded the Gold CAP award once again. It has been a trying time for everybody, but throughout we have worked tirelessly to ensure that Spire Manchester Hospital is clean and safe, and we are delighted when feedback from patients reflects this.
“We are really proud of the whole team – well done.”
