Service provided by NTH Solutions LLP, an NHS wholly owned company


With a workforce of over 700 members of staff, NTH Solutions was established to provide estates, facilities and support services to North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust. In addition, NTH Solutions’ wealth of expertise and experience means the team also supports external organisations across the UK with its services – and so the NHS Deep Cleaning and Advisory Service was launched.

Working with our clinical colleagues and our Trust’s infection prevention and control department, our growing team at the NHS Deep Cleaning and Advisory Service is serving external clients all over the country to help standardise cleaning of public spaces in line with our official protocol for cleaning.

Here’s an introduction to some of our subject matter experts leading the way in deep cleaning and decontamination for our Service.
