Fulham Road renews with ISS UK
Three NHS Foundation Trusts have awarded ISS UK major contract.
After a competitive procurement process, the Fulham Road Collaborative (FRC) has awarded a new five-year contract, worth more than £100m (842m DKK) over the contract term, to its existing provider, ISS Facility Services - Healthcare.
Representing some of the world's leading clinical facilities, the collaborative consortium of NHS establishments along the Fulham Road in West London and its associate hospitals include the Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, and the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.
This soft facilities management agreement is the second one awarded to ISS - a similar contract ran from January 2012. The new partnership will see ISS extend its presence to include waste management, whilst still providing a wide range of services, including healthcare cleaning, patient catering, portering and logistics, linen and laundry, reception, and car parking.
ISS was also successful in its tender to provide commercial retail services to the staff, visitors and patients at the Chelsea & Westminster and Harefield hospitals.
Chris Ash, managing director of ISS Healthcare in the UK, says:
"We are delighted that the Fulham Road Collaborative felt that ISS continued to offer the best value for money and service solutions to its patients. The process allowed us to showcase a number of innovation, technology led service solutions.
"I am particularly pleased to see the opening of our inaugural Academy, an industry-first training facility that that will bring to life our new approach to technical and behavioural skills development."
A spokesperson for the Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, and the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, says:
"All of us are delighted that ISS have been awarded the contract for a second time along the Fulham Road collaboration of hospitals. We are all committed to delivering excellent patient care and we look forward to continue working with ISS to ensure our high standards are maintained."
