Three year FM contract awarded by healthcare provider

G4S Facilities Management has secured a three year contract, worth £3.1 million per annum, to deliver FM services to Bedfordshire and Luton Mental Health and Wellbeing Services.

G4S FM will provide cleaning services at 41 sites in Bedford, Luton, and surrounding areas, plus catering services to 10 in-patient units, introducing housekeeping on wards to relieve pressure on nursing staff. Additional services include grounds and garden maintenance, pest control, portering, and courier services, as well as patrol and response and building opening and closing security services. The contract started in July, with a three-month transition period to embed all services. Up to 80 members of staff will TUPE across from incumbent suppliers.

Peter Jones, MD, G4S FM UK and Ireland, said: “Extending our services with ELFT is testament to the strong partnership between our organisations and the fantastic work of our teams on the ground. I have every confidence we will continue to deliver an excellent level of service and further develop our relationship with the Trust.”

John Wilkins, deputy chief executive and MD, Bedfordshire and Luton Mental Health and Wellbeing Services, added: “It is critical we have the right partner organisations to ensure we provide our patients and staff with the best possible care at all times. One of our key objectives is to improve the quality of our community and in-patient services. The new contract with G4S FM will help support that goal.”
