The NHS is constantly being challenged to improve efficiencies and the patient experience whilst having to drive down costs.
Through the ProCure21+ (P21+) Framework, Interserve is partnering with NHS clients to meet their objectives of improving estate efficiency and providing quality healthcare facilities.
The ProCure21+ Framework is a Capital Construction Framework run by the Department of Health for the NHS to develop, design, construct and refurbish NHS facilities.
Since the start of P21+ in 2010 Interserve, as 1 of 6 Principal Supply Chain Partners (PSCP), is helping 23 Trusts to deliver 35 schemes worth a total of £584 million .
Since the inception of ProCure21 (the predecessor of P21+) in 2003 and throughout the current framework, Interserve has consistently received exceptionally high levels of client satisfaction with KPI scores exceeding 80% (equivalent to an excellent service). Through proactive use of innovation and value engineering we have ensured our projects are completed on time and on or below the Trusts’ budget whilst providing our clients with quality environments for treating their patients.
Dedicated Health team
We have a team of dedicated framework managers with healthcare expertise who support our regional delivery teams. Our ProCure21+ Framework team ensures consistent approach and delivery whilst sharing best practice and lessons learnt nationally.
Leading technology and innovation
Our partnership approach is award winning collecting several accolades over recent years.
Last year, Interserve and our Principal Supply Chain collected the ‘Innovations in ProCure21+’ award at the Building Better Healthcare Awards. The estates improvements at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are an exemplar for collaborative working and for ensuring value for money for the NHS. Part of this was a satellite radiotherapy centre, The Endeavour Unit, which has won awards in its own right.
Our partnership with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, for example, has been built by consistently delivering a first class service; designing and constructing facilities which reflect the Trust’s ‘world-leading’ brand. We are now delivering the U.K’s first high energy proton beam therapy centre for The Christie as one of two Government funded centres.
Reducing cost through standardisation
We are a leading PSCP in the ProCure21+ initiative to meet the Government Construction Strategy helping to deliver construction cost savings of 14.1% to the NHS. Through the development of ‘Repeatable Room’ designs and standardisation of components, we are actively working on reducing the cost of healthcare facilities to the benefit of our NHS clients.
We have developed thirteen evidence based repeatable room designs for both Acute and Mental Health.
Adult Single Bedroom
Four-bed Multi-bed Bay
Use of the Repeatable Room arrangements have been benchmarked against Healthcare Premises Cost Guides (HPCGs) to deliver up to 11% target cost savings while providing improved patient outcomes.
Savings of up to 30% by standardising components
Suppliers and manufacturers to the health sector have also been engaged with this process and agreements have been reached, resulting in the development of 12 standardised components all available to the NHS at reduced cost. The team have also developed ProCure21+ specification for some components in collaboration with specialists and designers. Use of standardised components can lead to savings of up to 30%. Interserve and the other PSCPs have already incorporated over £1.3 million savings on components through the framework.
