VINCI Facilities has been awarded a five-year contract worth £1.05 million annually to deliver hard FM services to the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust.
The work, which is currently mobilising ready for the hospital opening in the spring of 2020, was won in a competitive process via the Crown Commercial Services RM1056 FM Framework.
VINCI Facilities direct client will be Clatterbridge PropCare Services Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the NHS Trust. The team will be providing hard FM services to what will be a new specialist cancer treatment centre with 110 patient beds, five linear accelerators and bespoke daycase facilities for the treatment of both solid tumour and blood cancers.
Propcare chose VINCI Facilities as its FM specialist and trusted partner to support them because of its award-winning reputation in healthcare FM – particularly its work supporting the delivery of best in class patient care at St. Helens and Knowsley NHS Trust.
Warren Hubbard, Director for Healthcare at VINCI Facilities said: “It’s great to win new work based on the excellent performance of our people across the various healthcare projects we are responsible for. We have strong evidence of our reputation for excellence – proof that what we do really does support positive outcomes for patients and clinical teams, not just the estates department we work alongside.”
VINCI Facilities will be introducing workplace management, CAFM and Helpdesk systems- specific to healthcare – to monitor productivity and competency.
The new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, Liverpool, is in the heart of the city and will sit alongside the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the University of Liverpool and Cancer Research UK’s Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit and will become The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre’s main site. It will provide specialist chemotherapy and other drug therapies, radiotherapy, inpatient and outpatient care, cancer support and rehabilitation, bone marrow transplant and urgent cancer care. There will also be a teenage and young adult unit.
