Sodexo secures £90m Romford hospital deal

Sodexo has agreed a £90m five-year extension to its Queen's Hospital in Romford contract.

It will continue a 10-year relationship with Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) to provide services including patient dining, hostess services, portering, cleaning and security.

As part of the deal Sodexo will introduce its new ‘Vive!' steam-cooked meals on wards, designed to improve the time between patient ordering and service. It will also offer a new children's menu alongside more gluten-free and vegan options.

Simon Mills, director of estates at BHRUT, said: "Delivering the highest quality of care possible to our patients is what we're always working towards, so it's been great to see some of the improvements Sodexo has made recently. These things can really make a difference and give our patients a better experience of staying in our hospital."

James Taylor, chief executive for Sodexo Healthcare UK & Ireland, added: "This contract extension represents some exciting new developments in patient dining, cleaning and retail at Queen's Hospital, and showcases the way in which Sodexo is using innovation to offer a better service to patients and to develop more strategic partnership with its clients."
