Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust has awarded ISS Facility Services Healthcare a five-year contract, worth approximately £40 million, to provide a wide range of soft FM services in south-east London.
Works will include cleaning, catering, housekeeping, security and associated services.
According to ISS, this is the first time that the trust has been able to take the opportunity of testing the services across their whole estate. ISS will be taking more than 250 new staff members into their Healthcare Team.
Alistair Campbell, contracts manager at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, welcomed the idea of "merging all these services into one single contract".
Campbell added: "There are many benefits, including the creation of one integrated team across our sites, providing great services in a consistent and coordinated way. This provides a great opportunity for innovation and I hope we will see immediate benefits."
