Source for Business has been awarded a £2.14 million water and waste water retail contract with Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Source for Business is the national trading brand for Pennon Water Services, part of the Exeter-based Pennon Group, which had previously provided water services to the Trust. Source for Business was awarded the retail contract for both services after a competitive process that saw the retailer focus on its expertise in water efficiency and the cost savings it could help the Trust to achieve.
Following recent contract wins with the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and BMI Healthcare, this latest success underlines Source for Business’ reputation as a specialist in the healthcare sector.
“We are very pleased to be awarded both the water and waste water retail contract with Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This will allow us to build a long term relationship with the Trust and will help it to use resources efficiently and to save money. This contract win adds to our growing reputation in the healthcare sector and highlights the expertise and customer service excellence we offer customers in this area,” said Richard Stanbrook, Director of Source for Business.
“We have been through a comprehensive process of understanding the newly deregulated water sector. Following a rigorous procurement exercise we are very happy to have secured Source for Business as our water and waste water services retailer. Through the whole procurement process they showed a real understanding of the site and appreciation of our needs. We are looking forward to a very productive relationship that works to continually improve our integrated capacity, efficiency and resilience agenda for a sustainable future,” said Richard Hales, Energy and Sustainability Manager (Estates and Facilities Management) at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest and best known NHS trusts in the country. As well as providing care through Addenbrooke’s and The Rosie hospitals, it is a leading national centre for specialist treatment for rare or complex conditions, a government-designated biomedical research centre and one of only five academic health science centres in the UK.
