BAM re-appointed to Government’s health framework for England

BAM has been re-appointed to Crown Commercial Service's (CCS) £9 billion healthcare capital projects framework for England - ProCure23 (P23). P23 is the fourth generation of NHS England and NHS Improvement's route to market for the provision of design and construction services to NHS capital projects.

P23 supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04 billion - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.

The new commercial agreement recognises the importance of public sector construction as a key driver of economic recovery, providing health bodies in England with a new route to market for construction works and associated services, and helping the UK to build back better. It adopts the principles of the Construction Playbook, rationalising frameworks in an innovative partnership between CCS and NHS England and NHS Improvement.

BAM tendered for, and has been appointed to, Lot 1 (covering three regions – Lot 1.2 North West, Lot 1.6 South East and Lot 1.7 South West - for schemes up to £20 million) and Lot 2 – National Lot (for schemes between £20 million and £70 million) which covers all regions.

NHS England and NHS Improvement leads the NHS in England, sets its strategic direction through the NHS Long Term Plan, and funds key priorities for improvement. P23 is the fourth generation of the ProCure route to market for the provision of design and construction services to NHS capital projects, with an estimated cumulative value of £9bn over its four-year lifespan.

BAM's healthcare portfolio under the current and foregoing ProCure frameworks already amounts to half a billion pounds of new facilities that help deliver the changing needs of the NHS.

The company's present portfolio includes modernising the estates of Bristol Royal Infirmary, Leeds NHS Teaching Hospital, Aintree Hospital, Salford Royal Infirmary, the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and Southampton General Hospital. BAM is using digital twin technology and installing healthcare innovations previously unknown outside the UK, placing it firmly at the front of change.

BAM is also a key player in the healthcare market in Scotland and Wales and has delivered schemes tendered outside of the frameworks.
