Interserve Press Office | Mar 09, 2011
Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been appointed the preferred Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP) to the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust for the next five-year ProCure 21+ framework period.
Interserve will assist the Trust with its vision to be the ‘Best Acute Teaching Trust in England by 2016’ and will undertake the Trust’s multimillion-pound Capital Investment Programme over the forthcoming period. Work will take place at the Queen’s Medical Centre, City campus and Ropewalk House, ranging from small projects to major new-build facilities, refurbishments and maintenance.
All six of the ProCure 21+ Framework Partners were invited to express their interest, with Interserve being selected as the Trust’s Partner for the duration.
ProCure21+, which began operating in October 2010, replaces the ProCure21 programme through which Interserve undertook 136 schemes on behalf of 52 NHS Trusts since the programme’s inception in 2002. Like ProCure21, Procure21+ will streamline and improve the procurement process for NHS Trusts across England, enabling them to select an appropriate supply chain partner to deliver acute, primary care and mental health facilities. As with ProCure21 there is a commitment to long-term relationships, collaborative working, integrated supply chains and the use of target-cost contracts.
David Paterson, Interserve Executive Director, commented, “Interserve’s appointment in this prestigious partnership arrangement with the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust is excellent news. It will enable us to improve the Trust’s hospitals to meet the changing needs of its patients, which is a theme running throughout ProCure21+.
“Interserve is the only Health framework partner supporting the NHS across England, Scotland and Wales. To date we have delivered several long-term capital works programmes with other NHS Trusts, creating partnerships and working as integrated teams that deliver high quality projects while driving down costs.”
