Critical environment specialist Keysource has secured four new contracts to support NHS Trusts across the UK with a range of infrastructure projects.
The contracts include audits, upgrades and replacements to critical environments for London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust, Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust, Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust and Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.
The business has secured a consultancy contract for Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust to audit three operationally critical data centres across the estate, assessing the infrastructure against best-practice standards and providing a strategy for long-term investment in their technology infrastructure.
For London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust, Keysource has been appointed to deliver a series of upgrade and maintenance projects. These including upgrades the technology infrastructure that supports A&E services, as well as upgrades to the cooling infrastructure and lifecycle replacement works. This follows consultancy work, completed by Keysource, which audited and reviewed the trust’s critical technology infrastructure.
Meanwhile, for Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust and Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, it has been appointed to deliver various upgrades and facilities management projects. This included a critical power upgrade that saw the team work in tunnels beneath Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals.
Richard Clifford, head of innovation at Keysource, said: “NHS Trusts know that their technology infrastructure is fundamental to delivering patient services and availability, accuracy and resilience is paramount. Clients recognise the critical nature of these infrastructures and our service enables them to find the most suitable way to future-proof them without disruption to staff or services.
“This is becoming more valuable for trusts as real estate consolidation rises up boardroom agendas while investment in digital transformation shows no sign of slowing. Our experience of working with both IT and Property teams, as well as working in live critical environments, means we have a solid proposition for the sector.”
