Procurement of an outsourced cleaning service
Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust sought our help to run a mini competition for their cleaning contract. They were so impressed with the service that we are now their framework of choice.
So far the Trust has run two cleaning tenders via EFM across their sites. They firstly ran a mini-competition across their Cinderford Dialysis Unit and through this were able to achieve a cost effective solution which had a clear approach for local recruitment in an area where recruitment has proven difficult.
The Trust subsequently ran a high level cleaning tender across the food preparation areas and restaurants across the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, Cheltenham General Hospital and Stroud Maternity sites which resulted in them being able to add additional services to their current specification and appoint a high quality provider that was value for money.
“It was a very smooth process and I can’t think of any improvements required. Would certainly use Everything FM again.” Caroline Darvill, Facilities Contracts Manager
