Statement on modern slavery

At Barnsley Facilities Services Limited we are committed to ensuring that no modern slavery or human trafficking takes place in any part of our business or our supply chain.

We are fully aware of the responsibilities we bear towards our service users, employees and local communities. We are guided by a strict set of ethical values in all of our business dealings and expect our suppliers (i.e. all companies we do business with) to adhere to these same principles. We have zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking. Staff are expected  to report concerns about slavery and human trafficking and management are expected to act upon them in accordance with our adult safeguarding policy and procedures.

  • To identify and mitigate the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our own business and our supply chain we:
  • Undertake appropriate pre‐employment checks on directly employed staff and agencies on approved frameworks are audited to provide assurance that pre‐employment clearance has been obtained for agency staff
  • Implement a range of controls to protect staff from poor treatment and/or exploitation, which comply with all respective laws and regulations. These include provision of fair pay rates, fair Terms of Conditions of employment and access to training and development opportunities
  • Consult and negotiate with Trade Unions on proposed changes to employment, work organisation and contractual relations
  • Purchase most of our products from UK or EU based firms, who may also be required to comply with the requirements of the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015) or similar legislation in other EU states.
  • Purchase a significant number of products through NHS Supply Chain, whose ‘Supplier Code of Conduct’ includes a provision around forced labour
  • With effect from January 2017, require all suppliers to comply with the provisions of the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015), through our purchase orders and tender specifications. All of which set out our commitment to ensuring no modern slavery or human trafficking related to our business
  • Uphold professional codes of conduct and practice relating to procurement and supply, including through our Procurement Team’s membership of the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply
  • Where possible and consistent with the Public Contracts Regulations, build long‐standing relationships with suppliers

Advice and training about modern slavery and human trafficking is available to staff through our Safeguarding Children and Adults training, our Safeguarding policies and procedures and our Safeguarding leads.

This statement has been approved by the Executive Team of Barnsley Facilities Services, who will review and update it on an annual basis.

New hospital initiative saves 161 tonnes carbon footprint equivalent per-year

Barnsley Hospital and Barnsley Facilities Services have smashed a further target in its Green Plan vision towards achieving carbon net zero, by ditching the use of desflurane anaesthetic gas.

The usage of this gas is one of the largest contributing areas of overall health service carbon footprint. Removing desflurane from usage at Barnsley Hospital, saves a whopping 161 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent, which is the equivalent to 374 Trans-Atlantic flights (London to New York JFK) in carbon footprint per year.

Consultant Anaesthetist, Dr James Turnbull led the project said: “operating theatres have a significant environmental impact on the planet. Much of this impact comes from the use of Desflurane anaesthetic gas.

We have taken the decision to remove Desflurane and all our staff fully support this initiative.  The use of lower carbon replacements has no negative impact on patient care, experience or recovery.  This decision demonstrates a clear commitment to reducing the harmful effects of anaesthetic gases and making our hospital greener in line with our Green Plan launched earlier in 2022.”
