The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS FT sets out £400m minor works framework

In an effort to support their own needs and those of other NHS trusts and related organisations in North West London, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is putting together a framework for a range of minor works.

The £400m framework agreement, which has just seen a contract notice put out for it, will range from small scale works up to larger schemes.

Once established, it is intended to allow both The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS FT and others from within the North West London STP Sector and Integrated Care System (ICS) to quickly engage with pre-vetted suppliers to deliver urgent related works in various disciplines.

With an ever-changing NHS environment, the trust has sought to work together to facilitate easier and more efficient engagement with local suppliers.

Tenders can be submitted for the framework up to a deadline of January 15, 2021.

The framework agreement is due to run for four years, covering a range of disciplines from construction work, works for complete or part construction and civil engineering work and repair and maintenance services.

The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS FT, who are setting up the framework agreement, is an NHS trust based in the namesake London Borough of Hillingdon and is responsible for providing healthcare services at both Hillingdon Hospital and Mount Vernon Hospital.

NHE365 Virtual Festival: Net-Zero NHS

As was outlined by Sir Simon Stevens when the NHS announced their green plans back in 2020, 5,700 lives could be saved each year by improved air quality. Even more could see their overall health improve and be in a position to self-manage their conditions, rather than requiring NHS treatment. Covid-19 has already left the NHS with a sizeable treatment backlog, so anything which can be done to improve patient health and reduce demand is beneficial for all.

Working together, we can help the NHS realise its green ambitions as per the Net-Zero National Health Service report and its ambitious 2040 target. Join us on August 25, 2021 for our Net-Zero NHS event, where we will be joined by health sector leaders and innovators for a day of sharing best practice and networking.
