Sodexo has formed a new Medical Advisory Council which will support the development of new protocols and standards including Covid-19 related services delivered worldwide.
The Council will provide technical guidance and validation on continually evolving and quickly emerging health & safety protocols for services, as well as the ways Sodexo engages with people and encourages safe behaviours. In addition, the Council will provide the latest information to ensure agile adoption of best practices, aligned with local requirements.
Operating as a governance body, the Council will be comprised of experts from around the world in epidemiology, family medicine, nutrition, occupational health and behavioural health, as well as pandemic planning and operations.
The founding members include:
- Dr John Boyce, global expert in infection control and epidemiology. Dr Boyce was previously Director of Hospital Epidemiology & Infection Control at Yale-New Haven Hospital and Director of Infection Control at Hospital of Saint Raphael in Connecticut.
- Dr Helen Stellmacher, expert in all areas of general practice with an emphasis on continuity of care and palliative care. Dr Stellmacher is a Member of the UK Royal College of General Practitioners and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Sean Haley, Sodexo UK & Ireland Chairman, said: “As businesses and consumers begin to emerge from the pandemic, they want to feel confident that their environments are safe. We are working with clinical experts and using the latest research, data and insights to set a strong and medically guided foundation for our protocols. Our goal is to minimise risk and enhance safety for all of our employees, clients, customers and suppliers.”
Sodexo’s Medical Advisory Council supports the comprehensive range of essential and innovative services Sodexo has developed under its “rise with Sodexo” initiative.
