Our Healthcare team were appointed by Somerset Primary Care Trust as their Trust Cost Advisor for Frome Victoria Hospital. The newly built £11.5m 28 bed Community Hospital housed a Maternity Ward and Renal Facility on a greenfield site. Our role was to manage the selection of the Principal Supply Chain Partner and the long term Project Manager for the development of approximately 3500m2 comprising inpatient care, rehabilitation unit, radiology and a minor injuries unit.
Frome Community Hospital was recently awarded the Integration and Collaborative Working Award at the Constructing Excellence South West Built Environment Awards. The one team approach fostered on this Procure 21 scheme was highlighted as key to the project’s success, which we are extremely proud to have been part of. As testament to the team’s hard work on this scheme we have secured a further two community hospitals for the Trust for Minehead Community Hospital and South Petherton Community Hospital near Yeovil.
Our appointments with Somerset PCT are testament to the expertise of our Healthcare specialists. We have been engaged by over 50 healthcare bodies in the past 2 years including care homes, primary care trusts and acute hospital trust with a construction value in excess of £250m.
