SGW Consulting Group are delighted to confirm that Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has appointed us to provide professional services, security consultancy, CCTV consultancy and project management in relation to the upgrade, extension and ongoing maintenance of CCTV and Electronic Security Systems for the Trust’s portfolio of hospital and healthcare premises.
The Trust required an experienced and competent consultant to assist in the development of the specification for CCTV procurement that meets the Trust’s objectives. SGW has been appointed to work with the Trust’s Project Team, including the Security Manager, Procurement, Estates, Finance, and other staff to define and document the requirements for a future CCTV and security systems’ deployment across the trusts estate. Consultancy work included the development of a complete specification and evaluation criteria. Each of the requirements have been documented, assigned a priority, and then agreed through a formal sign off process by the Trust’s Project Team.
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest, busiest, and most successful NHS foundation trusts. The Trust provides a full range of hospital and community services for people in Sheffield, as well as specialist care for patients from further afield. The Trust manages five of Yorkshire’s best known teaching hospitals, including:
Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has a long history of providing high quality care, clinical excellence, and innovation in medical research. With around 17,000 employees, they are one of the biggest employers locally. The Trust aims to reflect the diversity of local communities and is proud of our new and existing partnerships with local people, patients, neighbouring NHS organisations, local authority, and charitable bodies.
Jon Goodison, Security Manager at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust said: SGW has been found to be an excellent partner, offering advice from their wealth of experience in this field. They have listened to us as clients and met the brief without complaint or conflict. I have found them to be nothing but professional in every dealing with us, even when we change requirements well into the programme of works.
Such is the confidence we now hold in SGW, that we have extended their contract through the tender evaluation and project management stages.
Simon Whitehouse, Managing Director of SGW said: We competitively tendered for this project through the ESPO Framework 628 – Security and Surveillance Equipment & Services – Lot 6 – Independent Security Consultancy Services. Having a place on this framework enabled SGW to add another significantly sized NHS Trust, with multiple teaching hospital facilities, to our ever-increasing portfolio of healthcare sector clients. We are delighted that Sheffield Teaching Hospitals are working with us in close collaboration, where we feel we have become an extension of their security and facilities team, to ensure the trust develops and implements a robust and fit for purpose CCTV and Electronic Security System strategy, across its hospital and healthcare estate.
