New Soft FM Contract will bring investment to Warwick
South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust has named ISS Healthcare as its new Soft Services provider in a contract that is worth almost £45m over the initial five years. The award was made through the LPP Framework and will see ISS providing Patient Catering and Retail, Cleaning, Linen, Logistics and Security Services across four sites, including the impressive new Stratford Hospital.
The existing Restaurant at Warwick Hospital is scheduled to be redesigned for staff and visitors whilst a high street standard Café Qualita and SPAR convenience store will offer choice that meets the current CQUIN standards.
The award marks a return of ISS to the Trust as they provided services to them up until 2010. This is the second NHS Trust who have returned to ISS this year, closely following South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
Glen Burley, Chief Executive of SWFT said: “It is great to be welcoming back ISS as the Trust’s hotel services provider. Hotel services are an integral part of keeping our sites operational and support the provision of care to our patients. I look forward to working with them to deliver exceptional services.”
Chris Ash, Managing Director, ISS Healthcare said: “We are absolutely delighted to be asked to return to South Warwickshire. Ever since we left we have maintained a close interest in the development of the Trust which is now paying dividends as I believe that we have an excellent understanding of our critical support role in the provision of first class healthcare services to the local community.
