Client – Northern Care Alliance
Works are underway on a £3.4 million scheme to extend the intermediate care unit at North Manchester General hospital. Northern Care Alliance (formerly Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust & Pennine Acute NHS Foundation trust) procured the main contractor via CIF (Construction Impact Framework), and the project will see the construction of a new-build, 16-bed care unit extension that will be connected to existing infrastructure.
The Casey Group were appointed to carry out the works via mini-competition, and completion is expected following a 42-week programme of works.
The existing care unit forms part of Pennine’s Community Assessment and Support Service, an integrated service delivery model that aims to avoid admissions, reduce length of stay and improve patient and carer experiences by providing better access to the right intervention, at the right time, delivered by the right health or social care worker. This extension will enable the group to increase and enhance the delivery of such a vital service.
As result of Northern Care Alliance’s decision to procure these works through CIF, a significant investment pot will be generated that will be invested in social initiative/s across the Manchester region.
CIF is a value based socially driven framework; please have a look at our social impact case studies to see how Northern Care Alliance and CIF are changing lives through procurement. In the past, such investments made in partnership with Salford Royal NHS Trust (now Northern Care Alliance) include the provision of specialised wheelchairs for use by the volunteers service at Salford Royal Hospital, as well as the sponsorship of 20 places for young people on the Prince’s Trust Volunteers Programme. We are excited about the potential impact we can make on other people’s lives through future investments with the Northern Care Alliance.
