In Depth Managed Services, one of Britain’s leading cleaning and facilities management specialists, has launched a dedicated healthcare cleaning division focusing on hospitals, dialysis centres, nursing and care homes and dental surgeries.

“Healthcare is one of our key areas for future growth,” explained Kay Timms, UK Service Delivery Manager, heading In Depth’s healthcare division. We’ve noticed an increase in demand for reliable, expert cleaners in this environment and have built up considerable expertise in this area over a number of years. We work in association with healthcare professionals, providing integrated support tailored to their needs to ensure excellence in healthcare cleaning.”

Based in Warrington, it was founded over 30 years ago and claims to be one of only a few cleaning companies to have a dedicated communications centre. The company's services include office cleaning, industrial cleaning, window cleaning, pest control, landscaping and hygiene services.

Contract cleaning is undertaken on a national basis through In Depth's own staff and its window cleaning operatives are directly employed and fully trained to NVQ Level 2. Other services are delivered partly direct and in part through sub-contractors, depending on location.
