Support Services

Support Services

Facilities are an integral part of the patient journey in hospital. Covering the 24/7 activities at Musgrove is a challenge to ensure that we provide a support service that is consistent throughout the day or night.

A day in the life of support services can include: involvement of the linen delivery, same day patient food ordering, postal services, courier services to the many different Somerset surgeries, parking issues, patient care portering, transferring waste around the site, cleanliness response for the wards and security on site. 

The support services team includes members of staff with a range of skills, these include: switchboard, chefs, clerical, supervisors, portering, waste operatives, cleaners, managers, drivers and many more.

The variety of services that we provide demands us to be flexible and co-operative to people's requirements. There is also a number of staff members that work in more than one area, this enables the service to prioritise when pressures are focussed within the hospital. Although we are a support service, we are often called in to be front line and we are very proud that we are trusted to serve our patients.

Support services can be a winning formula within the Trust - the standards that we set for our cleanliness, patient food and service to departments is integral in forming strong and trusting relationships. Being part of Musgrove is being part of a larger team; having the same values as our clinical colleagues ensure that we treat our patients, staff colleagues and visitors with a positive culture.
