OCS Group has been successfully awarded a place on the CCS Framework for RM6331 Healthcare Soft FM Services.

The company, which announced new growth plans this year, said that being awarded a place on the framework cements its position as a best-in-class provider for healthcare clients. 

Services recognised within the framework include cleaning, catering, security services, portering and logistics, waste services, grounds maintenance, linen and laundry. 

OCS also noted that the CCS evaluation panel were impressed by its net-zero by 2040 strategy and support for helping underrepresented groups move into employment.

The framework itself is specifically for NHS acute trusts, community health trusts, mental health trusts and GP surgeries looking for an FM supplier.
