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 2018 the groups have continued to develop their relationships with other national agencies including the Environment Agency, NHS Improvement, NHS England, CIWM and NHS Digital. The members continue to act as a sounding board for these organisations, for example, the development of ERIC and HTM07-01.

The Group have agreed to run four meetings again across 2019 with the first taking place in Birmingham on Thursday 7th February 2019 followed by 3 further meetings.

I have been a member of the group for a number of years now and there has not been an issue relating to waste that the group has not been able to assist with , the group is really supportive of its members and has a vast array of experience in its membership.

The meetings are focused on the issues that we all face in our daily work dealing with the complicated task of waste disposal in a healthcare setting both acute and community.

Any one employed in the role of a waste manager, or has a responsibility of managing waste disposal in the healthcare setting would benefit from being a member of this group.

I find the NPAG Waste Management Group very informative. It gives myself a chance to share any waste issues that I may have concerns about, this can be either verbally during the meetings or electronically with all other NPAG members. Networking, I feel, is very important especially due to the legislative waste directive that we all have to follow. Above all compliance is a key issue for us all, attendance allows me to acquire any first hand legislative changes that might be arising. I’m also able to reassure my Trust that our waste is being correctly managed to diminish risk of possible prosecution/fines.

NPAG waste management group is a great platform for the sharing of ideas and practices. To know that every member there has either been through or is going through the same issues as yourself gives you confidence you ask questions. The knowledge base of the group is vast and diverse and it seems no matter how random the question, there will always be an answer.
The quality and diversity if the speakers is also great, whether waste is your only job, or an add on there is always many things within each meeting which is useful.
The ability to work with regulators and policy makers is also priceless. It truly is a group where you feel your voice and input really has an effect long term.
