Amey, one of the UK’s leading public service providers, has been awarded a £24million contract to provide ‘Hotel Services’ to the South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT).

The five year contract which begins in February 2014 will see Amey deliver services such as catering, cleaning, portering and security at Warwick and Stratford Hospitals.

The services will be delivered in the public buildings and healthcare environments at both hospitals, including the accident and emergency department and intensive care unit.

The South Warwickshire contract is the first to be secured through the London Procurement Partnership (LPP); a framework for National Health Service (NHS) soft facilities management services across 44 trusts. The LPP provides the opportunity for organisations like Amey who successfully gained a place on the framework earlier this year to bid for a variety of services within the NHS.

Amey currently delivers a wide range of NHS services including building maintenance, cleaning, catering and non-emergency patient transfer on behalf of the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust.

Speaking about the contract award, Mel Ewell, Chief Executive of Amey said:

“We are delighted to have been chosen by SWFT to deliver essential services to those who rely on the NHS every day.

“Ensuring such an important environment is kept safe and clean is essential for employees, patients and members of the public and we will work closely with SWFT, drawing on our experience in providing managed services in a healthcare environment, to deliver this.”
