Again Locala refuse to answer. It is my belief, from talking to district nurses, that they are allowing clinical waste to be put into patients general waste bins and from there into landfill.
It is now up to the local authority to investigate if they are complying with the EU directive on clinical waste disposal and to take any appropriate action.
Are Locala saving money by cutting corners?
