WINNER: STERIS & Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals & Kingston Hospital FT: Decontamination Centre of Innovation and Excellence

Designed and built in partnership with South West London Procurement Partnership, the STERIS Chessington Decontamination Centre opened in July 2021 following an extensive programme of construction work which, continued throughout the pandemic.

The centre provides a robust, high-quality and responsive circular economy approach for the management of medical devices to five major trusts, with further available capacity for other healthcare providers across London. Benefiting from STERIS’ wider capabilities, the facility offers its partners full onsite maintenance of surgical instrument repair together with dedicated low-temp services for robotic surgical devices and flexible endoscope processing.
