Client – Northern Care Alliance
Great midpoint update of the progress being made on the £3.4 million scheme to extend the intermediate care unit at North Manchester General hospital. The project includes the construction of a new-build, 16-bed care unit extension that connects to existing infrastructure.
Through Construction Impact Framework (CIF) Northern Care Alliance procured The Casey Group, who were appointed to carry out the project through mini-competition. The Casey Group commenced work in February 2019 with completion based on a 49 week programme.
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.
The Casey Group has provided CIF with some amazing aerial photographs of the progress being made on the site, shown below.
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.
