Trust ‘highly commended’ in national awards

14 March 2012

Chelsea and Westminster and our partners in the Fulham Road Collaborative—the Royal Marsden and Royal Brompton hospitals and the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR)—have been highly commended in a major national award scheme.

Chelsea and Westminster and our partners in the Fulham Road Collaborative—the Royal Marsden and Royal Brompton hospitals and the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR)—have been highly commended in a major national award scheme.

The Collaborative was a finalist in the Procurement Initiative of the Year category for health and social care organisations of the National Government Opportunities (GO) Excellence in Public Procurement Award. Winners were announced yesterday (Tuesday 13 March).

This is independent recognition of the Collaborative’s innovative approach to awarding the contract for ‘Soft Facilities Management (FM)’ services which include catering, cleaning, portering, and security.

The new contract, which was awarded to ISS Mediclean in December 2011, will result in significant cost and efficiency savings because it followed a competitive tendering process which focused on maximising value for money while maintaining service quality across all three hospitals and the ICR.
