Mitie has been awarded a new facilities management contract with Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, valued at £33million for an initial five years, with the possibility of extending this by up to two years.

The contract will see the specialist healthcare team from Mitie’s Environmental + business deliver a wide range of services to the Trust including domestic cleaning, portering and helpdesk services at Epsom Hospital and patient catering, ward hostess and retail catering services at both the Epsom and St Helier sites.

For patient catering services, Mitie will deliver in excess of 850,000 patient meals per year, as well as manage retail catering for the Trust, including two Costa Coffee outlets, a Subway store, and two restaurants. Mitie already provides a full range of facilities, property and energy services to the healthcare sector, including a number of NHS Trusts, GP surgeries, local authorities and private sector providers. 

Rob Cattell, Managing Director of Mitie’s Environmental + business, said: “This is a fantastic development for our business, and further expands our capability to deliver a full range of hospital services to a major acute Trust.

“We are looking forward to working with Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust to continually improve patients’ experiences, by upholding the Trust’s commitment to maintaining clean, safe environments for patients, residents, staff and visitors alike.”


The fight against the superbugs is currently a matter of extreme importance in the health sector. Managers of care homes and hospitals need to control both Clostridium Difficile and MRSA in order to prevent serious infection outbreaks. They will therefore need a cleaner/disinfectant which is both sporicidal and bactericidal, in order to ensure it is effective against both bacteria. Clover Chemicals can provide the solution:


Sporicidal action against C. Difficile

Bactericidal action against MRSA

Neutral formulation

High impact fragrance

Clostridium Difficile forms spores which can continue to survive and breed in harsh conditions. These spores are therefore very difficult to kill using traditional disinfectants. Freshnit has been proven to kill C. Difficile spores at a dilution of 1:20 (tested against C. Difficle ATCC 9689 to the European standard for the sporicidal activity of disinfectants, BS EN 13704).
