Sodexo secures place on CCS Healthcare framework

Sodexo Health & Care has landed a place on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) RM6331 Healthcare Soft Facilities Management Services framework.

The appointment is for a period of three years with an option to extend for an additional year.

This national framework is available to all UK public sector bodies to easily access services from a range of suppliers who have already gone through a procurement process to assess the quality and price of services. The RM6331 framework has been specifically designed to meet the needs of health care providers including NHS acute trusts, community health trusts, mental health trusts and GP practices.

Sodexo’s appointment to the framework will enable the organisation to bid for contracts which support the provision of soft FM services including linen and laundry, cleaning, waste management and catering.

Healthcare organisations using the framework will benefit from:

  • A simplified customer journey for procuring multiple services under one agreement.
  • Flexibility in procuring single or bundled services.
  • Support for social value initiatives.
  • Enhanced opportunities for SMEs to participate in bids.

Philip Leigh, CEO of Sodexo Health & Care, said: “This award is testament to Sodexo’s longstanding commitment to delivering exceptional quality services in healthcare settings and strengthens our position as a strategic supplier to the Government. Utilising our extensive experience, we’re excited to contribute to the Crown Commercial Service’s commitment of ensuring public sector entities, including the NHS, receive the best commercial and sustainable value in their procurement of goods and services.

“We’re delighted to bring our expertise to this framework, supporting not only in cost savings but also in enhancing the efficiency and quality of essential healthcare services and supporting the NHS and other healthcare organisations reach their net zero targets, through our own SBTi-validated net zero roadmap.”

Navigating FM efforts to sustainability 

As environmental protection demands unified action, transparency, and heightened awareness, Biological Preparations has launched an initiative to catalyse sustainability efforts within the FM sector.

FM businesses face unique challenges and heightened expectations of eco-initiatives from their clients. Yet, behind the scenes in FM businesses, many environmental initiatives, rollouts and even planning, are not broadcasted and transparent.

Have your say: Sustainability Trends in FM 

The UK biotech company’s five-minute, anonymous FM-focused survey, offers FM professionals of all hierarchies with a platform to voice their perspectives and share their experiences. The results from this survey will then be analysed and presented as an industry-specific report, which aims to guide FM businesses helping them benchmark trends, gain clarity on industry challenges, and map out goals and metrics towards sustainability.
