Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust look to ISS and the Future
After an extended period of competitive dialogue with a number of potential partners, Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust has awarded ISS Facility Services, Healthcare, a five-year contract, with an overall worth of approximately £40m, to provide a wide range of soft services, including cleaning, catering, housekeeping, security and associated services.
This is the first time that the Kent-based Trust has been able to take the opportunity of testing the services across its whole estate. ISS will be welcoming more than 250 new staff members into its Healthcare team.
"We are excited about merging all these services into one single contract," says Alistair Campbell, contracts manager, at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust. "There are many benefits, including the creation of one integrated team across our sites, providing great services in a consistent and coordinated way. This provides a great opportunity for innovation and I hope we will see immediate benefits."
Chris Ash, managing director of ISS Healthcare says: "We have wanted to provide services to Oxleas for a very long time and so I am delighted that, at last, we now have a unique opportunity of bringing all the services under one umbrella.
"We have put forward a number of initiatives that will see Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust become a great example to others in the way that it delivers its soft FM services across a range of clinical disciplines."
The contract will commence 1st April 2019.
