NHS Property Services awards Mitie with extension to facilities management mega-contract

NHS Property Services (NHS PS) has awarded an extension to a three-year contract to deliver engineering, landscaping and security services across the health service to Mitie.

The contract will see Mitie deliver mechanical and electrical services, building maintenance, security, and ground maintenance across the public body’s portfolio of 3,500 buildings, which represents about 10% of the total NHS estate.

Mitie has run the service since 2016, when 2,300 individual contracts were consolidated into five key contracts in order to deliver “significant cost savings” to NHS PS, which are then invested back into frontline patient services.

NHS PS manages health centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, and offices as part of a £3bn portfolio.

Carlo Alloni, managing director and engineering and integrated FM of Mitie, said: “We are delighted to have extended our contract with NHS Property Services into a fourth year.

“This requires a large-scale mobile facilities management operation across a wide range of services, showcasing the breadth of expertise we can bring to such specialist contracts.

“Delivering on our commitments in the original contract has earned this extension and enables NHS Property Services to use the cost savings we have generated to reinvest in patient care.”

The chief operating officer of NHS Property Services, Martin Steele, said: “We are pleased to have extended our contract with Mitie, who continue to provide electrical, mechanical, fabric and security services for NHS Property Services.

“The additional fourth year extension is a reflection of Mitie’s commitment to improve service performance whilst reducing running costs which ultimately are passed back to our customers. We look forward to working with Mitie in the year ahead.”
