MITIE SECURES CONTRACT WITH YORKSHIRE AMBULANCE SERVICE

MITIE SECURES CONTRACT WITH YORKSHIRE AMBULANCE SERVICE

Mitie has been awarded a £6m contract to provide facilities management for the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS), following a competitive tender which was designed to integrate a number of contracts into a single provider.

The new partnership, which began on 1st April 2020, sees Mitie provide technical services to 100 YAS sites covering the entire region for five years, with the option to extend for a further two years.

The YAS estate consists of a range of sites across Yorkshire and the Humber, all of which are crucial to its operations. This includes 61 Ambulance Stations, which require regular maintenance and a rapid response to the failure of critical equipment, such as garage shutters and doors which enable the ambulances to exit quickly. 

The Mitie team also has responsibility for maintaining sites which support the Service’s other core functions, such as the 999 and NHS 111 communications centres and offices for administrative staff. These require regular maintenance of HVAC, power, and fire safety systems, to ensure these vital public services are kept running 24/7.

David Sanderson, Associate Director of Estates, Fleet & Facilities, Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, said: “A well-maintained estate is vital to enable us to operate effectively as a service and provide a first-class emergency, urgent care and non-emergency patient transport services to the people of Yorkshire.

“We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Mitie which has supported us well through the last five challenging months of the coronavirus pandemic.”     

Carlo Alloni, Managing Director of Technical Services and Integrated Facilities Management, Mitie, said: “From Ambulance Stations and 999 communications centres to administrative offices, every single Yorkshire Ambulance Service site plays a critical role in ensuring these vital services are able to operate 24/7/365. It’s a privilege to play our part in maintaining this estate, especially against the challenging backdrop of COVID-19. We look forward to bringing our technology-led approach and commitment to delivering the exceptional every day to YAS.”
