The Gleam Team

Medical Centres

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator for health and social care services in England and aim to ensure that healthcare providers meet Government standards for quality and safety. By April 2013, registration with the Care Quality Commission will need to be completed and practices will need to satisfy the new standards.  One of the important standards is that primary care medical and dental premises have a process in place to ensure that the environment is clean, safe and protected from infection.

The Gleam Team have 23 years’ experience and understand the importance of a clean and hygienically safe environment.  Through working with healthcare professionals we are able to provide an in-depth cleaning schedule that complies with CQC regulations and helps you meet “the essential standards of quality and safety”, that  practices will be measured against. We provide regular audits, weekly supervision and appropriate documentation to prove that cleaning standards are of the highest quality, measurable and sustainable.

We deliver a professional service and work in conjunction with Practice Managers and NHS infection control specialists to ensure that the risks for infection are minimised through the cleaning process.

This is achieved through:

  • Experienced, reliable, fully trained staff.
  • Robust quality control systems.
  • Regular cleaning audits including weekly Works Supervisor visits.
  • Use of colour coded cleaning system to prevent cross-contamination.
  • Managed absence cover.
  • Fully flexible, confidential service.
  • Being environmentally aware – we are committed to reducing our negative environmental impact and proactively look to develop and implement positive environmental solutions.

The Gleam Team, through Christine Whitfield, has recently become a member of the Association of Healthcare Cleaning Professionals (AHCP) which is the professional body for excellence and best practice in healthcare cleaning in the United Kingdom.  AHCP members are directly involved in delivering cleaning services in over 90% of U K NHS hospitals.
