Local MP Margaret Beckett has officially opened Synergy Healthís new head office in Derby, as well as visiting its Sterile Service facility at the Royal Derby Hospital, which is delivering services to the Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Not only did the Derby South MP open the head office, but she also had an exclusive behind the scenes tour, where she was shown Synergy Healthís reusable surgical instrument sterilisation services and saw how they improve service and quality while significantly reducing operating costs.
Synergy Health provides specialist outsourced services to healthcare providers including surgical instrument sterilisation services that support the trustís operating theatres and wards, as well as its overall clinical safety.
'It gives me great pleasure to officially open Synergy Health's new office at the Wyvern Business Park in Derby,' said Beckett.
'Furthermore, the opportunity to visit Synergy Health's facility at the Royal Derby Hospital gave me an insight into the services it delivers to the Derby Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. I was impressed that Synergy Health makes a great contribution both in terms of local jobs and to the National Health Service.'
Synergy Health's Chief Operating Officer Adrian Coward said: 'We are delighted that Margaret Beckett responded to our invitation to officially open our new head office. The new site is testament to the growth of the company and points to an exciting future.
'Additionally, Ms Beckettís tour of our facility at the Royal Derby Hospital allowed her to see what excellence in standards and facilities looks like behind the scenes. We feel very strongly that the cost savings demanded in the healthcare sector do not need to have an impact on the standards of sterile services or compromise patient safety.'
