Sad news – Death of fellow Society member

Unfortunately I have been informed that Arthur Clark sadly passed away on Tuesday 5 May I believe following a battle with cancer.  Until his retirement Arthur was the Linen services manager  at Bradford Royal hospital and a member of the Yorkshire region of the Society. Arthur was always a strong supporter of the society and will be missed by all those who knew him. Our thoughts and best wishes are with his family at their sad loss.

Is your laundry provider struggling to provide a service?

The TSA (Textile Services Association) has advised the Society that their members would be available to provide a service to NHS trusts should their present laundry service be compromised as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. However we would advise anyone to undertake a risk assessment/audit of their facilities and policies to ensure they meet the requirements as specified by the Department of Health as to their ability to provide a safe service.  For further information

On guidance received from the government we have reluctantly decided to postpone the event until later in the year. This decision has not been taken lightly, however we must consider the safety of all those who would be attending. For those who have already booked further details will be sent asap
