QE Facilities: Establishment of wholly owned subsidiary company, [QE Facilities LTD] of Queen Elizabeth Hospital Gateshead Foundation Trust
Gateshead Health Foundation Trust, also known as Queen Elizabeth Gateshead (QE), is based in the North East of England. The project came about following the trust recognising a huge financial challenge over the next few years.
The aim was to create a first of its kind multi-faceted, flexible vehicle to deliver a value for money support and procurement service to maximise efficiencies and economies and take advantage of the trading benefits of being a separate legal company.
The judging panel thought that this was an excellent example of how amazing cost reductions can be achieved by reviewing how NHS services are provided.
