Sodexo awarded place on CCS Healthcare Soft FM Services framework 

Sodexo Health & Care has been named on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) RM6331 Healthcare Soft Facilities Management Services framework for a period of three years with an option to extend for an additional year.

This national framework is available to all UK public sector bodies to easily access services from a range of suppliers who have already gone through a procurement process to assess the quality and price of services. The RM6331 framework has been specifically designed to meet the needs of health care providers including NHS acute trusts, community health trusts, mental health trusts and GP practices.

Sodexo’s appointment to the framework will enable the organisation to bid for contracts which support the provision of soft FM services including linen and laundry, cleaning, waste management and catering.

Healthcare organisations using the framework will benefit from:

  • A simplified customer journey for procuring multiple services under one agreement.
  • Flexibility in procuring single or bundled services.
  • Support for social value initiatives.
  • Enhanced opportunities for SMEs to participate in bids.

In a world of growing clinical demand and workforce challenges, healthcare organisations will benefit from Sodexo’s expertise in creating positive patient experiences, improving patient flow, and promoting the wellbeing of staff and communities.

Sodexo Health & Care offers global expertise with the power of science and technology, designing and delivering more effective healthcare facilities management services that help to achieve better health and financial outcomes.

Philip Leigh, CEO of Sodexo Health & Care, said: “This award is testament to Sodexo’s longstanding commitment to delivering exceptional quality services in healthcare settings and strengthens our position as a strategic supplier to the Government. Utilising our extensive experience, we’re excited to contribute to the Crown Commercial Service’s commitment of ensuring public sector entities, including the NHS, receive the best commercial and sustainable value in their procurement of goods and services.

“We’re delighted to bring our expertise to this framework, supporting not only in cost savings but also in enhancing the efficiency and quality of essential healthcare services and supporting the NHS and other healthcare organisations reach their net zero targets, through our own SBTi-validated net zero roadmap.”

The Crown Commercial Service plays a vital role in helping the public sector obtain maximum value in procurement. In the fiscal year 2019/20, CCS’s initiatives led to over £1 billion in commercial benefits, highlighting its effectiveness in public service enhancement. This framework not only simplifies the procurement process for public bodies but also ensures cost-effective access to top-tier facilities management services.
