The Healthcare sector of Compass Group UK & Ireland – the UK’s largest food and support services firm – will be providing retail services to Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as part of a new 15-year contract worth an estimated £25.5 million overall.
As part of the deal, Compass is supporting the hospital’s growing services, and has created and funded a new modern main entrance to Milton Keynes University Hospital, as part of a new development that offers staff, patients, and visitors, a welcoming reception area complemented by popular high-street brands including Costa Coffee, the Subway brand, and Little Fresh convenience store. The hospital officially opened the new entrance on May 26.
Professor Joe Harrison, the Trust’s CEO, said: “We are incredibly pleased with the new main entrance building that the Compass Group UK & Ireland has delivered. It will provide us with a much-needed space for staff, patients, and visitors, and will ensure we have a main reception area fully equipped with all the facilities you would expect to see – from convenience stores to patient information services.”
