We are pleased to announce that facilities management staff at our hospitals, who used to be part of Carillion have now transferred to a new company, called Avrenim Facilities Management Ltd, which has been established to exclusively provide these services to the Trust. This has been set up as a subsidiary of The Hospital Company (Liverpool) who managed the contract with Carillion.
All jobs have been protected and staff will continue to provide services to the Trust. Staff have employment contracts with broadly the same terms and conditions as before.
There will be no changes to the services provided to our hospitals.
John Newberry, Avrenim managing director, said
"This is an incredibly proud moment for me and the Avrenim team to be able to continue to deliver services to the Trust. I have been incredibly impressed with my team for their diligence and efforts during a very stressful time. The support from the Trust and the Hospital Company (Liverpool) has been incredible."
Aidan Kehoe, chief executive, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust, added:
"We know that this has been a challenging and frustrating period for the staff involved and we would like to thank them for their efforts during this time. We are really pleased that jobs have been protected and that staff will be able to continue to provide a vital service for our hospitals."
