Business as usual at the Great Western Hospital

Posted: January 15, 2018

Plans in place to limit any potential disruption

It was announced this morning (Monday 15 January) that Carillion, which provides services such as catering and cleaning at the Great Western Hospital, has declared insolvency. 

We have planned in advance for such a situation, working closely with our PFI partners, and our teams are now working hard to ensure services provided by Carillion continue as normal.

Although this is a developing situation, we fully expect services at GWH to continue as normal throughout today and the remainder of this week, and for there to be minimal disruption to patients or visitors. 

Our Carillion colleagues, many of whom have worked with the Trust for many years, are just as much a part of our team as our own staff and, while this may be an unsettling time, we thank them for their continued support.

We remain in close contact with our PFI provider, which holds the contract with Carillion, and have been given assurances that all staff will continue to be paid as normal.
