A national award celebrating the contribution of organisations working in and alongside the NHS has been won by Heartlands Hospital in partnership with G4S Facilities Management (G4S FM).
The Birmingham hospital won the Health Business Awards 2015 Estates and Facilities Innovation category earlier this month in recognition of critical work to prepare for potential Ebola patients. The award was achieved jointly by the hospital’s facilities and emergency planning teams working together with G4S FM, who delivers cleaning, security, portering, ward hostess and car park management at the 700 bed hospital.
Commenting on the award, Helen Moreland, G4S FM healthcare operations director said:
“I am really proud of our Heartlands Team and the close working relationship we have established with the Trust. Working in partnership and having effective plans and procedures means we can together respond professionally to all routine and emergency situations within the hospital.”
The teams competed against the North Bristol NHS Trust and the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust as finalists for the coveted award.
