MAT FM wins major service contract

The company will provide a five-year ventilation service with University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust

MAT FM has been awarded a five-year critical ventilation service and maintenance contract for the Hospital of St Cross and University Hospital, both of which are managed by the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. VINCI Facilities is responsible for facilities management at the sites, and invited MAT FM to tender when the contract came up for renewal earlier this year, after working together successfully at Whiston Hospital in Merseyside. This new contract is the latest in what has been a very busy and successful year for MAT FM, including winning new work at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Northampton General Hospital, Guy's Hospital in London and, most recently, Sunderland Royal Hospital.

MAT FM won the tender with a cost-effective proposal that offers the highest standard of care. Work will be undertaken around VINCI Facilities' planned preventative maintenance schedule and includes:

  • Validation and verification: Validation and annual verification of specialised ventilation systems, a requirement of HTM 03-01 relating to the design and testing of hospital ventilation systems for critical areas such as operating theatres, pharmacies and aseptic suites
  • Servicing: Six-monthly verification, compliance testing and certification of all ultraclean systems and containment cabinets, regardless of manufacturer
  • One-off repairs: Reactive maintenance for essential repairs, including out-of-hours attendance
  • Inspection and monitoring: A full inspection and monitoring service of all critical ventilation systems

With a dedicated 24/7 call centre and a national network of engineers, each with a fully stocked van, MAT FM responds to all service calls quickly. It carries out minor repairs on the spot where possible and ensures downtime at the Hospital of St Cross and University Hospital is kept to an absolute minimum, supporting them in the delivery of the best possible patient care.

Full details of the services offered by MAT FM can be found in our brochure, which is available to download. If you would prefer a hard copy, please email and one will be posted to you.
