Our Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (BSMHFT) Facilities Management team, together with the local NHS Trust Estates team, has been recognised for their partnership working and dedication to ensuring all Trust buildings are kept clean and maintained to the highest standards.

The Team of the Year Gold Award was presented to both Amey and the local NHS Trust Estates team at the recent Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust Quality Excellence Awards 2018.

The awards are a chance to thank the dedicated people and supply chain partners who help ensure BSMHFT runs smoothly and patients are treated with compassion and dignity in a clean, safe environment.

Our team has been responsible for ensuring the BSMHFT continues to consistently maintain high standards, scoring 100% for cleanliness and being recognised as one of the top NHS Trust in the country for conditions, appearance and maintenance in the Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment (PLACE) – the nationwide NHS benchmark used for assessing the quality of the patient environment.

Jerry Molony Amey’s Director of Facilities Management, said: “This is fantastic recognition for the hard work and commitment of our Facilities Management team, which helps provide clean and well-maintained environments for both patients and NHS staff every day. The dedication of our team has helped the Trust to improve standards year on year, unlock efficiencies, as well as enhance the patient experience.”
