Robotic cleaners roll out We learn about Killis Robotics joining forces with Compass Group to support NHS hospitals.


Medirest, the healthcare division of Compass Group UK & Ireland, is introducing 12 brand new cleaning robots to their cleaning team to support several NHS hospitals across the UK.


Medirest has been working in partnership with Killis’ robotics division to develop the innovative technology manufactured by leading robotics company Lionsbot in Singapore. These are ideally suited to the large open areas in hospitals. The team has been successfully trialling three of the robots within partner hospitals for just over one year now.


Supporting Medirest’s team of over 3000 cleaners, the robots enhance repetitive cleaning procedures in open spaces such as corridors, freeing up other team members to focus on touchpoint and cross-infection hot spots, forming the perfect ‘cobotics’ relationship.


The technology incorporates a scrubber dryer system, which typically uses 70% less water and fewer chemicals than traditional cleaning methods, perfect to help NHS Trusts to operate more sustainably, as well as contribute towards the Compass Group UK & Ireland’s Climate Net Zero targets.


The robots are active in Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and University College London Hospitals, with more hospitals across the UK signing up to use the technology – which is currently exclusive to Medirest.


The first robot has been named in memory of Medirest colleague Hanzel Gardener, who sadly lost his life during

the COVID-19 pandemic. Hanzel did a significant amount of work in developing robotic technology for the organisation, and was a much-loved member of the Medirest team.


Tibor Killi, Managing Director of Killis, stated: “We are absolutely delighted that Medirest share our belief and vision that robotics can play a key role in the day-to-day cleaning of a hospital environment. Robotics are changing the way we clean and we are proud to be such an active part in supporting the NHS and medical sector.


“Killis has invested many years of research and development in cleaning machine robotics and we believe our range of robots are the best cobotic to ease human-intensive cleaning for workforces, with efficient technologies that really work.”


Anna Hallas MBE, National Domestic Lead for Medirest, commented: “Following independent trials with three hospitals, our teams have come to the same conclusion that the robot technology has delivered improved quality, consistency of cleaning, productivity and fantastic reaction from staff and visitors to the hospitals. This tech will really help our other team members focus on the more intricate and in-depth cleaning, so we’re thrilled to be the first to bring this to our NHS partners.”
