BUCKINGHAMSHIRE HEALTHCARE NHS TRUST
Serving over half a million patients each year, the Buckingham Healthcare NHS Trust has over 5,000 highly-qualified staff including Doctors, nurses and therapists supporting Buckinghamshire and neighbouring Counties.
In 2012, Liftec were asked to tender for the maintenance of 44 hospital lifts by the Buckingham Healthcare NHS Trust. The Trust had lift reliability issues that were not being resolved by the incumbent service provider, relating to 9 of the Trust’s locations.
Liftec were awarded the maintenance contract for all 44 lifts after a successful tendering process, a contract we have retained through successful retendering and reliable lift performance since 2012.
Liftec have a long-standing reputation for reliability and consistency within the Healthcare sector. We do not subcontract any of our contracted work for maintenance or engineer call out to third parties, as we believe experienced local engineers who know our customers will always provide the very best of services.
Our agreement with Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust is to undertake a maintenance and repair service for each of the 44 units across nine of the Trust’s sites, which includes the following:
Chalfont & Gerrards Cross Hospital
Stoke Mandeville Hospital
We ensure that passenger entrapments and potential lift failures are resolved as quickly as possible. Liftec provides a 24-hour, 365-day emergency call out service. This covers all of the Trust’s sites and adheres to the Trust’s special requirements for engineer visits during day and night periods.
