Interserve wins £13m hospital services contract

Interserve has won a £13m contract to deliver facilities management for Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust over the next five years.

The construction and support services firm, which issued a profit warning last month, will provide domestic cleaning, window cleaning and grounds and garden services for the 789-bed Poole hospital.

It will be the first time the company has worked with the trust.

Interserve communities managing director Martin Burholt said: “Our extensive work within the health sector has enabled us to develop a strong understanding of the NHS.

“Our approach is always to provide a unique service solution, investing in the latest equipment to deliver high service standards, ensuring a clean and safe environment for all.”

This latest contract win follows the company agreeing a £90m five-year contract with the Department for Transport last month to provide facilities management.

The company also landed a £160m contract on the construction side in August to provide engineering support services at the Sellafield decommissioning site in a joint venture with Amec.

Last month’s profit warning came after Interserve said that trading in July and August was “disappointing” in its support and construction services.

The company has brought in a new chief executive officer and chief financial officer in the last two months.
