Graham awarded East Kent NHS Trust water hygiene contract


Graham has been awarded a three-year water hygiene contract by East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust to deliver Legionella planned maintenance and risk assessments across five main sites

The sites include Canterbury Hospital, Buckland Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, William Harvey Hospital and Royal Victoria Hospital.

It has developed a national and international reputation for delivering specialist care, particularly in urology, kidney disease and vascular services.

This latest compliance services contract award for Graham follows a recent three-year contract extension for the provision of Legionella treatment and risk management services on behalf of the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (SEHSCT).

A growing healthcare portfolio

Graham contracts manager, Chris Shepherd, said: “It is a privilege for us to be selected by East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust to provide these critical water hygiene services.

The Trust provides ‘great healthcare’ wrapped in a ‘we care’ philosophy.

“Our intention is to replicate its high standards and ensure that it has total confidence that its statutory water hygiene obligations are being met, monitored and, ultimately, complied with.

“This latest contract adds to our growing healthcare portfolio across the UK and, following the heroic efforts of the NHS in responding to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are especially proud to be a trusted partner.”

A spokesperson for 2gether Support Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary company of East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Graham for the delivery of water hygiene management, and we will use the latest technology to help provide a safe, effective and compliant service.”

East Kent Hospitals is one of the largest hospital trusts in England, serving a local population of around 695,000 people.
