One Retail and Noviniti to transform Warwick Hospital estate

South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust has partnered with One Retail, Compass Group UK & Ireland’s retail sector and Noviniti, an innovative and solutions driven developer working in partnership with the public and private sectors and leading blue-chip organisations, to transform the Warwick Hospital estate.

The project is a huge investment, which will help create sustainable and accessible services alongside transforming the hospital’s main entrance look, feel and flow of people.

As part of the development, the Trust is building a dedicated facility, known as an elective hub. This will enable the organisation to increase the number of surgical procedures they can carry out – helping to meet future service demand and reduce wait times for patients.

The new entrance due to open early next year, will see new retail offers launched. In a first of its kind, One Retail will combine two high street favourites at Warwick Hospital. One of the retail units will offer a hybrid Marks and Spencer and Costa Coffee, bringing innovative digital screen self-ordering tech. The offer will mean people can purchase a range of goods including Costa Coffee and food such as pastries and sandwiches, as well as quality M&S products.

To ensure that the NHS’ mandated 24/7 offer is also available, One Retail will introduce smart fridges, which will mean people can access grab and go food at any time of the day.

Sophie Gilkes, Chief Strategy Officer at South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust, said: “Our Trust is transforming the Warwick Hospital estate to create sustainable and accessible services, while enhancing the environment and overall experience for our patients, staff and visitors. We are very excited to partner with One Retail and Noviniti to strengthen our food and retail offering and create a modern and welcoming main entrance, which will meet the needs of our local community for years to come.”

Andrew Jones, One Retail, Managing Director said: “This is another first for One Retail –  a great and innovative retail solution, which makes the most of the space available by creating a hybrid retail concept which will guarantee greater choice and quality for staff, visitors and patients. It’s really exciting to be involved in South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust’s project, which will truly transform Warwick Hospital for everyone visiting it.”

Marc Hastings, CEO of Noviniti added: “We are delighted to be working with South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust to support their transformation strategy at Warwick Hospital. Together, with One Retail, the new Main Entrance development will greatly improve the staff, patient and visitor experience and provide an improved pathway into the hospital. We are looking forward to the doors early next year.”

FM Tech Survey 2024 

Service Works Global (SWG) is conducting research in partnership with FMJ, to find out how you are using technology in your role through a short survey.

Whatever your FM role, your responses will help to provide analysis and insight into the use of technology, as the FM industry rises to meet the challenges of sustainability, new ways of working and data-driven decision making. This will enable FMs to gain insight into future trends to stay ahead of the curve, and be able to benchmark against the industry as a whole.

The anonymised results will be published so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, participants will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive an iPad 10th Generation worth £499.
