Pozzoni secures place on the NHS Shared Business Services Framework Agreement

26 July 2023

Successfully securing a spot on the highly anticipated NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) Healthcare Planning, Construction Consultancy and Ancillary Services Framework, Pozzoni is now one of the consultants offering architectural services across the UK.

The framework agreement, which will run for a maximum of four-years, provides a compliant procurement route for the NHS and other public sector organisations and covers both new build and refurbishment projects.

Pozzoni has broad experience of working with hospital trusts, independent hospitals, health and care organisations across a wide range of projects. This includes reconfiguring estates to better suit commissioning needs, creating new facilities that can be shared across the wider public sector, provision of new housing or reducing estate running costs through enabling the disposal of redundant assets.

Complementary sectors across the business also form part of the offering to potential framework agreement clients. The later living team designs inclusive schemes for an ageing population and has built a national reputation within the nursing and dementia care field, and the housing team celebrates a strong track record in specialist accommodation for adults with learning and physical disabilities. Wellness centres, often incorporating GP referral rooms, phlebotomy and podiatry facilities, is an important part of the leisure team’s portfolio and finally, our education team designs for children with physical and learning disabilities, including working with the National Autistic Society.

Nigel Saunders, director, commented “This is the first time we have tendered for the NHS SBS Framework Agreement so securing a place as one of the architectural consultants is a great achievement for the business. Designing buildings that enhance quality of life and wellbeing sits at the very heart of what we do. We look forward to collaborating with the NHS SBS, and its clients, to create modern, efficient and fit-for-purpose solutions to ensure positive impacts for end-users and stakeholders alike.”

NHS Shared Business Services partners with NHS organisations all over the country to improve efficiency, generate cost savings and transform corporate services.
