Sharps and Clinical Waste Management in Poole


Situated in Dorset, Poole’s breathtaking natural landscape is one-of-a-kind. The town is home to the largest natural harbour in Europe and with its famous Sandbanks Beach and beautiful Old Town, Poole is unsurprisingly a tourist hotspot. The town’s central location makes it the perfect place to begin your Dorset adventure, situated near stunning natural sites like of the Isle of Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast.


Poole offers a range of nautical adventures for visitors from water sports, luxury yacht rides, to group ferry tours - all perfect complements to the town’s award-winning beaches, harbour and Quay. If water activities aren’t your preference, then Poole Park is just a stone’s throw from the Quay, another family-friendly destination with fun to be had. Featuring a miniature golf course, miniature railway and even tennis courts, getting bored at Poole Park is simply not an option!

If you’re looking for more outdoor adventure and perhaps some photo opps, try the elegant Compton Acres. Originally built in the 1920s, the 10-acre plot is said to be one of the finest privately-owned gardens in England. On the days you’d just rather stay indoors, there’s still plenty to do in Poole. The Poole Museum spans through four different buildings across town and is dedicated to the town’s history pre-21st century. From maritime history and Old Town artefacts, to medieval history and anecdotes of community life, the museum holds a plethora of collections that neatly summarise everything there is to know about Poole. 


As such a spirited and lively town, Poole's healthcare needs to be a top priority to match its vibrant lifestyle.



Clinical Infectious and Offensive waste Management made easy


Trying to navigate the complexities of healthcare waste segregation can be confusing, especially when regulatory guidelines are set at a local levels. Partners to UK Healthcare for over 15 years, Sharpsmart is Britain’s leading clinical expert in clinical waste management with a portfolio of customers ranging from large NHS hospitals through to nursing homes and laboratories.

Some of the most common waste streams we handle include:

  • Clinical Infectious waste
  • Offensive waste
  • Sharps waste and laparoscopic device collection
  • Pharmaceutical waste and expired medications
  • Cytotoxic and Cytostatic waste
  • Anatomical waste
  • Confidential document shredding


Helping Poole Healthcare Facilities manage waste cost-effectively

As a full service partner, Sharpsmart is a one-stop company for the full management of waste streams generated in a hospital or primary care facility. From audits, training and waste segregation planning, through to waste collection, treatment and disposal – Sharpsmart manages every interaction of the waste journey.


Consolidating all waste streams to be managed by a single company ensures all education is standardised, invoicing and contract management is simplified, and the customer experience is consistent, responsive and straightforward. Through our auditing process before we enter into a partnership we review what your organisational goals are and ensure that our solutions not only capture compliance requirements, but also drive behaviour towards your facility’s desired service outcomes, these can include:

  • Reducing clinical waste volumes

Healthcare waste segregation should be simple – and it is with our Verify Waste Identification Tool

We don’t believe any clinician should have to stress over which bin an item of healthcare waste goes in. Sharpsmart’s Verify mobile application is essentially an on-the-go waste management portal that can be used on any smart phone. Set up to accommodate your facility’s unique disposal mandates for types of waste, the Verify application intuitively helps clinicians designate what bin their waste should go in. For UK healthcare facilities, overcategorised waste is one of the most prominent causes of inflated clinical waste management costs, and mis-categorised waste (particularly hazardous waste streams or controlled substances) poses not only compliance and environmental risks but can also incite substantial fines. Verify helps to minimise these risks while improving staff confidence in waste disposal. Features of the system include:

  • Waste Index by type and contamination
  • Monthly waste output and audit reports
  • Your facility’s waste policy loaded with mobile search capability  
  • SOPs and education material
  • Improved segregation will lower your costs!
