Confidentiality, Trust and Compliance for Health Professionals

As part of the health sector, patient confidentiality is of absolute top priority, and you will already have systems in place to ensure that any patient information you hold will be safely stored. But what happens when this information is no longer required?

Stringent NHS guidelines require absolute destruction of confidential patient data, and all paper-based documentation must be finely cross-shredded to ensure confidentiality is unbreached. Simply Shred & Recycle has been serving the health sector for the past eight years and understands the importance of absolute destruction of confidential waste. Our mobile shredding units will collect secured documents from your office or surgery and shred them onsite, maintaining a clear chain of custody. We then provide you with a Certificate of Destruction for your compliance records.

We cater for all areas of the health sector and have experience of handling both small surgeries and larger hospital contracts. We are happy to discuss your requirements and can provide sector-relevant references upon request.
