Sodexo scoops £35m FM contract at Ilford hospital

Sodexo has scooped a £35m facilities management contract with one of the UK's largest NHS Trusts.

The five-year deal with King George Hospital, Ilford, is to provide total facilities management (TFM) services. Sodexo will employ around 360 staff in its operation at the 455-bed hospital to provide patient, staff and visitor catering.

Other services will include estates and energy management, grounds and gardens, security, traffic management, cleaning services, pest control and portering.

Simon Scrivens, managing director, Sodexo Healthcare, said: "We are delighted to have been awarded the King George Hospital contract and are especially pleased to develop our existing relationship with the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust."

It is Sodexo's first TFM contract with the NHS outside of its Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contracts.

The hospital is part of the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University NHS Trust which serves a population of around 700,000 people making it one of the largest NHS Trusts in England.

Sodexo has been providing TFM services to the Trust's PFI Queen's Hospital in Romford since it opened in October 2006.

John Goulston, chief executive of the Trust, said: "We have built up an extremely good working relationship with Sodexo at Queen's Hospital, and are delighted to be extending this to King George.

"I am confident that they will bring their proven high standards in facilities management to both of our sites."
