Capita wins £80m contract with London community trust

Outsourcing firm Capita has been made preferred bidder for a 10-year, back-office support contract with Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH) worth £80 million.

The firm will deliver IT, recruitment, payroll, estates and facilities management services to the trust.

In a press release, Capita said the contract would help to “improve the quality of the corporate services for all CLCH staff at a lower cost”.

Capita chief executive Andy Parker said that the contract was a “testament to Capita's experience in supporting the health sector and wider public sector”.

James Reilly, chief executive at CLCH, said: “The strategic partnership will help us to protect investment in frontline services; delivering effective and efficient corporate services that allow our clinical teams to focus on providing the best possible patient care.

“The partnership will also help us grow as an organisation; developing new services and improving existing ones to better meet the need of both patients and commissioner.”

With over 3,000 staff, CLCH is the largest community healthcare services provider in London.

It provides care for more than one million people across Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Barnet.

Browne Jacobson advised CLCH. Rachel Whitaker, a lawyer at the firm, said: "We have been delighted to support the trust throughout this procurement process to select a preferred bidder to take on the trust's corporate support services and develop an innovative model of support through this strategic partnership."
