FOI 2084 Cancer Environment

  • Does your Trust conduct regular environmental monitoring, risk assessment and/or staff surveillance within cancer day units to detect possible chemical contamination from hazardous drugs being administered? E.g. Surface contamination wipe tests.
  • If so, what assessments/tests are conducted and how often are they carried out? 



The Trust does not undertake any tests to manage cytotoxic contamination in the cancer day units.
Trust drugs and giving sets are disposed of as per COSHH protocol.   If there is a spillage we commence the Cytotoxic Spillage Policy and use the spillage kit to support.
