Speller Metcalfe’s Group Managing Director, Des O’Neill said: “This framework is an opportunity for us to contribute to improved healthcare services across our key regions.
“Having worked for numerous NHS Trusts and private sector clients we are looking forward to bringing our expertise and extremely high levels of quality to a sector which continues to grow, particularly in line with the UK’s aging population.”
The four year framework will be key to the delivery of a range of projects across the acute, primary care, community care and elderly care sectors – from NHS to private facilities.
