Hull & East Yorkshire NHS retains its trust with MITIE

MITIE has retained a major healthcare cleaning contract in England for a further five years. The contract, with Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, consists of two large acute hospitals and five smaller sites, with approximately 570 MITIE employees involved in a variety of hospital cleaning duties. The new multi-million pound agreement will continue until 2016 with a possible two year extension after that.

David Booth, director of MITIE’s healthcare team, said: “We are delighted to have retained this prestigious contract. Cleaning hospitals is a critical task and you have to get it right all the time - there can be no ‘bad days in the office’. We have worked very hard to deliver a consistently high standard of service on the contract and have established a great working relationship with the client that has benefited our on-site operations. I am particularly proud that the training and benefits we offer have helped us to achieve a very high employee retention rate on the contract and a great team spirit which really makes all the difference.”

Pauline Lewin, the director of infrastructure and development at the Trust, said: "We are delighted that MITIE has been successful in its bid for a new contract with our Trust and look forward to continued partnership. We will work together to ensure that our hospitals are cleaned to the highest standards."
