St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Renews Medirest Contract

Catering, Contract Awards, Healthcare, EMEA
Medirest, the healthcare division of Compass Group UK & Ireland, will continue to provide St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust in Merseyside with portering, security, receptionist, retail, and patient catering services using the innovative Steamplicity cooking concept - which offers poached salmon, vegetarian Cottage Pie and fish and chips as meal options, following the extension of its facilities management contract from June.


Medirest has been working with the Trust for a decade and in this time the two organisations have established a true partnership approach, which puts the patient first. In August last year the Trust was named the best acute NHS Trust in England, according to The Patient Led Assessments of the Care Environment (PLACE) programme. The Trust achieved the highest marks in the country in every area of the inspection including cleanliness and food. As a result the Trust presented Medirest with an “Outstanding Achievement” award at its annual awards event earlier this month.


Steve Cenci, Managing Director of Healthcare at Compass Group UK & Ireland said: “We are really proud of our track record with the Trust and our team has done a fantastic job in delivering the best possible quality of services to the patients at these hospitals. Through this new contract we strive to continue this excellence and to strengthen our partnership further.”


Ann Marr, Chief Executive at St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospital NHS Trust said: “The Trust is pleased to continue its partnership with Medirest, which over the past ten years has been very successful. The Medirest team deliver their services with great efficiency, which means we can focus on delivering the best possible care to our patients, in the best environment. The results of the PLACE inspection speak for themselves in terms of how successful this partnership is.”


St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust provides a full range of acute healthcare services across a number of sites including inpatient, outpatient, maternity and emergency services.
