Vinci Facilities has won a five-year contract worth £1.05 million a year to deliver hard FM services to the new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust in Liverpool.
Vinci Facilities' direct client will be Clatterbridge PropCare Services Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the NHS trust. The team will carry out hard FM services at what will be a specialist cancer treatment centre with 110 beds, five linear accelerators and bespoke day case facilities to treat patients with both tumours and blood cancers.
Vinci Facilities will use its expertise in tested process, procedures and technology and seek to introduce workplace management - CAFM and helpdesk systems specific to healthcare - to monitor productivity and competency.
The centre is in the heart of the city 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.
Tony Raikes, managing director at Vinci Facilities, said: "The new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is going to play a critical part in the lives of patients and their families across the region, not just Liverpool, because it is part of a wider transforming cancer care investment in improving cancer care across Merseyside and Cheshire.
"We have a responsibility to those patients and their relatives, and we will also be making sure that we put something back into the communities to make sure we make a difference through structured social value work - not just our facilities services."
Work has started on the hospital in preparation for its opening next spring.
