Clinical Waste

The proper management of clinical waste for your business is vital – and this is where Initial comes in. After completing a pre-acceptance audit, to identify and categorise the kind of waste you are producing, Initial will advise you on the steps to take including the products you will need to segregate and then dispose of it properly. Depending on the nature of your organisation, your waste may include drugs and other pharmaceutical products, swabs and dressings, syringes, needles.

Clinical waste is defined in the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992. It refers to any waste that consists wholly or partly of:

  • Human or animal tissue
  • Blood or bodily fluids
  • Excretions
  • Drugs or other pharmaceutical products
  • Swabs or dressings
  • Syringes, needles or other sharp instruments which, unless rendered safe, may prove hazardous to any person coming into contact with it.

Clinical waste also refers to any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice, investigation, treatment, teaching or research.
