Axis Security has won a hat-trick of new contracts within the National Health Service in the North West.
New contracts awarded by NHS Property Services in Oldham, Stockport and Tameside & Glossop have now been added to its existing security contracts in Manchester, Trafford and Salford, further strengthening the relationship Axis Security has had with the NHS since 2005.
NHS Property Services was created in April 2013, when it took over the responsibility for the Primary Care Trusts (PCT) contracts. As part of a rationalising process, many of the existing contracts were put out to tender.
Axis Security is providing a dedicated, round the clock mobile patrol service to Stockport’s 24 sites, as well as alarm response and CCTV monitoring and maintenance services; manned guarding for two of Oldham’s 18 sites and for the remainder an instant alarm response service; and for the four sites in the Tameside & Glossop contract, it is providing manned guarding at one site and access control and key holding services at the other three sites.
Melanie Wood, Commercial Manager at Axis Security says that Axis was chosen because the client was impressed with the quality of its tender documentation and for the existing relationship it has with the NHS: “The detail and presentation of the documentation demonstrated that we had the knowledge and experience to provide the right services to suit the requirements of each contract, and at a competitive price.”
