GRAHAM has been awarded a three-year contract extension for the delivery of legionella treatment and risk management services by the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (SEHSCT).

The privately-owned facilities management contractor was initially appointed by the SEHSCT via the NHS Shared Business Services Framework on a one-year term, beginning in March 2020. The new contract will now run to 2024.

The SEHSCT is one of five Trusts within Northern Ireland and covers the local government districts of Ards, North Down, Down and Lisburn.

The integrated organisation, incorporating acute hospital services, community health and social services, serves a population of approximately 345,000 people.

GRAHAM delivers Legionella planned maintenance, Legionella sampling and risk assessments across a wide array of Trust properties including hospitals, critical care sites, health centres and nursing homes.

GRAHAM Operations Director, Martin Gillespie, praised the delivery team for their professionalism, particularly in mobilising and operating the contract during the Covid-19 pandemic. He said:

“We are proud to be supporting the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust and helping the Trust with its compliance services in these very challenging times for the healthcare sector. The award of this contract extension is testament to the high standards of consistent service and performance from our entire team of helpdesk operatives, site staff, consultants and management. This is a great achievement and demonstrates the vital role we are playing in keeping a key NHS Trust compliant during such testing times due to the pandemic.”
