G4S Heartlands Hospital FM team partners with NHS Trust to win top award
The Birmingham hospital won the Health Business Awards 2015 Estates and Facilities Innovation category earlier this month in recognition of critical work to prepare for potential Ebola patients. The award was achieved jointly by the hospital’s facilities and emergency planning teams working together with G4S FM, who delivers cleaning, security, portering, ward hostess and car park management at the 700 bed hospital. The teams competed against the North Bristol NHS Trust and the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust as finalists for the coveted award.
This industry accolade tops off an exceptional year for the Heartlands team, which has seen them shortlisted as finalists for three other prominent industry awards: the British Institute for Facilities Management (BIFM) 2015, the Kimberley-Clark Professional Golden Service Awards 2015 and the PFM Partners in Healthcare Award. They also recently won the Teamwork & Collaboration award at G4S’s own annual UK & Ireland Regional Excellence Awards.
Helen Moreland, G4S FM Healthcare Operations Director added: “I am really proud of our Heartlands Team and the close working relationship we have established with the Trust. Working in partnership and having effective plans and procedures means we can together respond professionally to all routine and emergency situations within the hospital.”
