ghp October 2016 | 9 GRAHAM Selected for £4bn P22 Government Healthcare Framework The Department of Health has appointed GRAHAM as one of six Principal Supply Chain Partners (PSCPs), along with Kier, Interserve, Galliford Try, BAM and IHP (a joint venture between Vinci and Sir Robert McAlpine). P22 is the third iteration of the framework that provides the NHS with the tools to deliver improved estate performance while lowering construction and maintenance costs. This new framework is designed to further drive increased efficiency and productivity, streamline the procurement process and produce stronger partnerships between clients, PSCPs and supply chains – all with the aim of supporting enhanced clinical outputs for patients and better environments for staff and visitors. Keith Hayes, healthcare director at GRAHAM Con- struction said, “with the P22 framework focusing on quality, value, cost certainty, collaboration, stand- ardisation and a drive for efficiency savings, we are confident that the knowledge and experience gained from our extensive ongoing healthcare portfolio will help further enhance its outcomes. “We’re looking forward to working with the Department of Health and our PSCM and PSCP colleagues once the framework comes into place. The combination of the GRAHAM regional office network, carefully as- sembled specialist supply chain members, BIM focus and extensive experience across the full spectrum of healthcare facilities means we will be able to help NHS clients successfully deliver improvements across their estates and ultimately contribute to optimum outcomes for patients and staff.” GRAHAM is a privately owned company operating in the construction, asset management and project investment sectors. With a proud heritage where traditional skills and values are fused with profession- al management, the company has grown to have a turnover in excess of £500 million and employs more than 1,900 people. In October 2015, GRAHAM Construction was listed at number 26 in the prestigious Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, which ranks Britain’s mid-market growth private companies with the biggest sales.
