We are a specialist company of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust created to provide exceptional, value-for-money linen services at very high quality for hospitals and community trusts in the South of England.

Dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs and standards of the NHS in particular. SLS is a modern laundry, EN14065 accredited (highest healthcare linen infection control standard), staffed and managed by dedicated, highly-trained professionals who are committed to the highest standards of quality and customer service. We offer both Sterile and Non Sterile Linen Services.

As a NHS company, SLS understands NHS healthcare requirements better than most other commercial laundries and recognises the demands placed on hospital directors and managers to maintain a sure and safe linen supply.

We know that we have to be flexible and responsive to meet your needs, and will work in partnership with you from the beginning to plan and deliver a high-quality service - striving always to do better than you expect.

We have a proven track-record of excellence, backed by testimonials and references. We guarantee a reject rate of less than 1% (compared with the 3-5% industry standard), highly competitive prices and a consistent and reliable supply. It is our 'Salisbury' brand of quality-service that has already made us the first choice of NHS hospitals in the South of England. Now with increased capacity we're able to offer this service further afield. Backed-up by a partnership network of healthcare linen providers working to Salisbury’s exacting quality-assured standards, we have robust contingency arrangements in place for any foreseeable emergency situations and so will never let you down.

What makes Salisbury Linen Services different?

Salisbury Linen Services has an unrivalled ability to be flexible in meeting the needs and service requirements of its clients. As a NHS company, we work differently and more responsively for our customers than the larger corporate operators who are driven to maximise profits and satisfy shareholder demands. Fully aware of our direct impact on patient care, our focus is rather to support healthcare providers in the wider perspective, maximising the quality of our service to the complete satisfaction of our clients. We call it public service, commercially inspired.
