ISS has been awarded a new healthcare contract with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), worth an estimated £55 million over the initial five-year term.
The contract, which began on the 1st May, sees ISS deliver catering and healthcare cleaning across the trust.
Based in and around south-east London, SLaM provides the widest range of NHS mental health services in the UK. SLaM also provides services for people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol. As well as serving the communities of South London, it provides specialist services for people from across the UK and beyond. Locally, it delivers mental health services for people living in the London boroughs of Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark; and substance misuse services for residents of Bexley, Lambeth, Greenwich and Wandsworth.
Chris Ash, managing director at ISS Healthcare, said: "The trust had been a valued customer up until 2009, when the next round of tendering saw another provider takeover, but we left on good terms and always acted in a professional way, so it is doubly good to be asked to resume our relationship."
