ISS has been awarded a new healthcare contract with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), worth an estimated £55 million over the initial five year term. Based in and around South East London, SLaM provides the widest range of NHS mental health services in the UK. The contract, which commenced on 1 May, will see ISS deliver catering and healthcare cleaning across the Trust.
The SlaM implementation team stated: “We are delighted to welcome ISS back into the Trust. ISS won a competitive tender process run through the London Procurement Partnership framework agreement for soft FM services. Since working with ISS through the implementation we have found them responsive and helpful at all times, they understand the challenges of a mental health Trust and we look forward to working with them to help us continue to focus on the wellbeing of our service users.”
Chris Ash, managing director, ISS Healthcare, said: “The Trust had been a valued customer up until 2009, when the next round of tendering saw another provider takeover, but we left on good terms and always acted in a professional way, so it is doubly good to be asked to resume our relationship.”
