Respect for Hospec


When it comes to the Healthcare & Hospital Hygiene and the NHS, Hospec is a brand you can trust.


The Hospec range of products has been used in the NHS for over 30 years and is written into many Trusts’ Cleaning Guidelines. The brand is owned by Robert McBride Ltd, Europe’s leading supplier of private label cleaning and personal care products.


John Murphy, Business Manager, was responsible for rebranding and expanding the range to its current level of 18 products, as part of a recent tender submission to the NHS Supply Chain. Not only were McBride first in the e-auction, but their tender submission received a perfect score, which was testament to the pedigree of both the brand and the backing it has from McBride.


We are all aware of the need for good hygiene and in the current economic climate the requirement for products fit for purpose that are economical, effective and efficient is vital. McBride know this only too well, by virtue of dealing with some of the most demanding customers there are, in both the retail and professional sectors.


The Hospec range of products has been designed to clean and disinfect a wide range of surfaces as detailed in the Revised Healthcare Cleaning Manual compiled by the National Patient Safety Agency. Cleanliness is intrinsically linked to infection prevention and control. A clean, well ordered environment provides the foundation for excellent infection control practice to flourish. Clean surfaces are more difficult for bacteria to grow on and therefore keeping surfaces regularly clean (in particular those that are frequently touched by hand) is an essential part of any hygiene protocol.

There are chlorine-based products capable of producing solutions with up to 10,000 parts per million available chlorine for applications such as dealing with body fluid spills or terminal cleans of vacated rooms, bactericidal cleaners that can kill 99.999% of bacteria that are also odour and taint free making them ideal for use in food service, dishwasher tablets and dishwasher liquid for crockery and utensils, glass cleaner and a range of other detergents, bleaches, degreasers and disinfectants.


The range also includes two toilet cleaners. Most Britons do not clean their toilets anywhere near enough, a survey has revealed. The poll, of 16 to 64-year-olds, showed that 78% of the nation do not clean their loos every day - and only 6% bother to wipe round the bowl when it is visibly dirty. The survey was commissioned by the charity Toilet Twinning,

will keep it spotless and there will be no build up of odours or bacteria.”


Hospec Daily Use Toilet Cleaner is ideal for this. If limescale removal is required then use Hospec Professional Toilet Cleaner - it kills 99.9% of bacteria too.


The range has many other applications such as in dental and GP surgeries, care and nursing homes, other Public Sector institutions, restaurants and food service, and more besides.
