£4.1 million contract extension at Sunderland Royal Hospital

G4S Facilities Management (G4S FM) has announced that its cleaning contract at Sunderland Royal Hospital has been extended for three more years and new services added by taking on the delivery of ward hostess services at the 970 bed healthcare site.

The cleaning contract, which has been in place since 2011, is worth £3.5 million per annum. It will be boosted by an extra £600,000 per annum following the addition of the ward hostess service. Around 60 staff from City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust are expected to TUPE across to G4S when the G4S-run ward hostess service goes live, bringing the total number of G4S FM staff on site to over 300.

Stuart Mold, FM director for G4S Facilities Management, said: “We are very proud to be continuing to provide FM services to the Trust at Sunderland Royal Hospital. With a partnership approach and by working together proactively, we can deliver high quality services more efficiently for the NHS.”
