Waste Management Best Value Group
The NPAG Waste Management BVG is a unique group enabling NHS waste managers to meet and share new ideas, evaluate tenders, discuss common problems, measure service providers performance, provide cost effective solutions, be creative and innovative in service design and generally network with others involved in the complex area of waste management. The group has been running for a number of years and has consequently developed a rich and multifarious membership which is continuously evolving. Throughout 2016 the group has seen its profile raised considerably via its continued work helping with the development of the European Waste Management Project (EUHCWM) culminating in a very well-received shared conference in November attended by over 70 healthcare waste management professionals from across Europe. Additionally, the Group have had excellent interaction with NHS Digital (formerly HSCIC) regarding refinements and improvements to the annual ERIC waste data collection system.
The Group have agreed to run four meetings again across 2017 with the first taking place in Birmingham on 2 February 2017 followed by 3 further meetings in the same location.

“This is a meeting I always look forward to, and always gain something from, even if it is just a boost from the moral support received by other group members.”Waste Management BVG Member 2016
‘I think this year was very productive. It was a great learning experience and we made real progress especially with our changes to the ERIC reporting being accepted by HSCIC and our ongoing work with the EU to develop a healthcare waste qualification.
I also had a good time at the last conference – very interesting learning from other countries about how they manage waste. It certainly gives some perspective to us.”
