Health

Tilbury Douglas has a proud record of delivering high-quality healthcare projects, often in live environments. From small refurbishments to large scale complex schemes like the UK’s first proton beam therapy unit for The Christie in Manchester, that received multiple awards including Gold award from Considerate Contractor and BIM project of the year.

We are the only Principal Supply Chain Partner which has worked with the Department of Health on all iterations of the NHS ProCure frameworks, and over those 18 years we have delivered over 850 healthcare projects for our NHS clients, totalling in excess of £9.25 billion. These are delivered by our experienced health teams located in seven regional offices ensuring personalised, local delivery by staff living in the locality.

Our healthcare solutions draw on the broad expertise of our team and supply chain. The collaborative work done at framework level supports national health standards, innovation and modern methods of construction, supporting our regional teams to deliver at pace, drive down construction costs and improve capital programme efficiency, making every pound of scarce resource count.

Recently, we have worked closely with Trusts to deliver several critical projects in the fight against Covid 19, creating additional capacity in ITU facilities, theatres and other critical care environments. We delivered the NHS Nightingale Hospital in Birmingham, providing the first 500 fully ventilated beds in just nine days and a separate scheme in the Midlands received the following comments from the Trust’s executive board;

“It’s the confidence that we have in Interserve to deliver which means we can roll out multiple major projects concurrently. Not just the confidence to deliver on time but being able to work in their live hospital environment without compromising operational delivery allowing us to maintain our reputation for excellence.
We would like to pass on our thanks to you and your team for all the hard work you have put in to ensure that the additional emergency facilities were up and running when needed.
You and the team need to understand, not only have you done your jobs in the construction of the facilities, but in these unprecedented times when there is so much uncertainty – we can say with certainty that lives have been saved and you and the team have been part of that lifesaving team.” – NHS Trust CEO
