G4S has announced an extension to the facilities management contract with Barnsley Hospital to deliver a three-year security service. The new contract won by the company’s Secure Solutions business, is worth £960,000 and adds to the cleaning services G4S facilities management already provides on site.

 The security team will carry out manned guarding and car park management throughout the 350 bed hospital, which serves 250,000 people in the Barnsley area.

Commenting on the new contract, Doug Hewitson, Regional Managing Director, Secure Solutions UKI said: “We have recently implemented specialist training with the Yorkshire relief team to provide planned and unplanned absence cover.  Our teams have a good understanding of patient needs, especially working with vulnerable patients. With the hospital treating over 78,000 patients a year in the emergency department alone and renowned for its friendly culture, as their chosen service provider we will ensure our employees do the best possible job.”

 Lisa Corbridge, Local Security Management Specialist from the Hospital Foundation Trust said “Given the excellent work of the cleaning staff at Barnsley Hospital, we have full confidence in their (G4S) ability to reflect the Trust’s values.”
