Mitie, the FT250 facilities management company, has had its healthcare contract with St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust extended for three years.
Following negotiations, an extension to the current Mitie contract has been agreed from 1 April 2016 for the healthcare team, worth approximately £33 million over three years. Mitie has worked at St George’s for the past seven years and has 680 employees working at the Trust.
St George’s Hospital is the largest provider of healthcare in southwest London, with nearly 8,500 people serving a population of 1.3 million across southwest London and it is renowned for its training and advanced medical research. The main site in Tooting, is one of the country’s leading teaching hospitals.
Mitie’s Environmental + healthcare team proudly supports some of the UK’s largest and best-known NHS trusts and it is this experience, coupled with Mitie’s ability to deliver a full suite of soft FM services in-house and under one management team, that won Mitie a contract extension.
The Trust has a good relationship with Mitie and both parties are keen to develop a number of initiatives over the coming year to improve the quality of the services provided.
Bob Forsyth, Managing Director of Mitie’s Environmental + business, commented: “We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Trust and are committed to providing the highest levels of services to benefit the hospital’s staff, patients and visitors.”
Lindsay Coles, Mitie’s Healthcare Director added: “St George’s is a hugely important contract to us and we will be bringing in new lean processes that drive efficiencies, and making significant investment in new technological platforms that will transform the way our contract is delivered.”
