Severn Trent hosts Annual Health Liaison Day 

Tuesday 13th February 2018

Severn Trent has hosted its annual Health Liaison Day, in which the company invites more than 100 professional bodies to talk about innovation and water quality.

The FTSE 100 Company welcomed health professionals, water quality experts, members of local authorities and colleagues from other water companies to the event in Sutton Coldfield, which is designed to promote discussion and share knowledge around the water industry.

Scott Ludford from Severn Trent, who organised and hosted the event, said: “It’s brilliant to have so many people with different expertise in one room who are willing, and keen, to share and discuss knowledge and ideas.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase some of the great work we do at Severn Trent, as well as taking advantage of having so many experts together at the same time. Building great relationships within our industry is vital, so we’re really thankful to those who attended and took part to help make the day as successful as it was.”

Among the attendees were Public Health England and Wales, the Drinking Water Inspectorate and the Consumer Council for Water, as well as local authorities within the company’s region, which covers the majority of the Midlands and mid-Wales.

The company delivered various presentations around new innovative technology it’s using, as well as showcasing the ways it’s looking to improve water quality.

“The water sector is constantly evolving, so days like this are really valuable in making sure we’re sharing innovative ideas and learning from each other so we can continue to provide a great, reliable service for our customers now and in the future.” Scott added.

Paul Quinn, Local Consumer Advocate for the Consumer Council for Water, who attended the event, said: "It was great to witness Severn Trent and public health professionals generously sharing their experiences, knowledge and innovative ideas to help ensure that current and future consumers can have confidence in the safety and wholesomeness of their tap water."
