01 September 2020
 

Mitie has secured a new contract to deliver engineering services for the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

The FM provider will deliver maintenance and engineering services for 100 Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS) sites across the entire Yorkshire region.

The contract is worth £6 million across five years, with the option to extend for a further two.

 

“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."

–David Sanderson

Associate Director of Estates, Fleet & Facilities, Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust

 

Maintenance of Critical Equipment, Fire Safety Systems and Winter Services

 

The YAS estate consists of a range of sites across Yorkshire and the Humber including 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.

YAS serves over five million people across Yorkshire and the Humber and receives on average 2,800 calls every day.

As part of the contract, Mitie is also providing landscaping services, including grass, shrub and weed maintenance, for 64 of the YAS sites, as well as winter services, including highway gritting and snow clearance, for six other locations.

In addition to providing maintenance services, Mitie will support the contract by identifying areas where efficiencies can be made to support YAS’s sustainability commitments and reduce its carbon emissions. 

Mitie will also be working with its charity, the Mitie Foundation, to run an initiative that will support people from the local community who are currently experiencing barriers to employment. Mitie will work alongside YAS and the Foundation to develop a programme of activity, for example by offering work experience schemes or training on key skills.

 

Maintaining an NHS Estate Against the Backdrop of COVID-19

 

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, added:

“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.”
