Mitie strengthens partnership with NHS Trust

Mitie has won four contracts, two to deliver facilities management and two to provide catering services, for Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust. These services were previously managed by Interserve Facilities Management but were renewed following Mitie’s acquisition of Interserve in November 2020.

The new contracts will be for five years, with the option to extend for an additional two, and will see Mitie provide services for 75 buildings, including mental health facilities and inpatient units, in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, and Norfolk. Around 300 Mitie employees will work on the contracts to provide cleaning, security, portering, linen and laundry, catering, and helpdesk services. Although Mitie has signed four different contracts with the two separate NHS Trusts, the services will be managed as a single account, with one Mitie team working across all sites.

Dean Raffles, head of operations, estates and facilities, Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust, said: “Well maintained and efficient facilities are an essential part of delivering excellent healthcare services for the local community. We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Mitie and look forward to working closely with the team to ensure our sites remain safe for service users and staff.”
