Compass signs £25.5m contract with Milton Keynes University Hospital

The healthcare sector of Compass Group UK & Ireland will be offering retail services to Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as part of a new 15-year contract worth an estimated £25.5m.

As part of the deal, Compass has created a new space to include retail offers. The main entrance to the hospital, funded by Compass as part of the new development, now features high-street brands including Costa Coffee, Subway and a Little Fresh convenience store.

The contract will see 50 new jobs created at the hospital.

Steven Cenci, managing director of healthcare at Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: "We are extremely excited to have introduced a new entrance to our client and their visitors and staff as part of our partnership with Milton Keynes University Hospital. The creation of a new reception area with familiar high street brands will not only provide the hospital with a new look and a welcoming entrance but will also meet the requirements of staff and visitors in particular, providing healthy and high-street food options as well as a grab-and-go convenience shopping offer."

Professor Joe Harrison, chief executive at Milton Keynes University Hospital, added: "We are incredibly pleased with the new main entrance building that the Compass Group UK & Ireland has delivered. It will provide us with a much needed space for staff, patients and visitors of the hospital and will ensure that we have a main reception area that is fully equipped with all the facilities you would expect to see from convenience stores to patient information services."
