BSMHFT Fleet management system shortlisted for HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards

Published: 25/06/2014

Our in-house Vehicle Fleet Management system, delivered via our in house Facilities and Porters teams, has been shortlisted for this year’s HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards in the Value and Improvement in Transportation and Logistics category.

HSJ Value awards

This award is open to transport or logistics services that can demonstrate improved efficiency, quality and value in transporting patients or essential supplies to and from NHS facilities.

After receiving notification of cancellation from a previous supplier, the facilities team were then tasked to develop our own fleet service to patients and staff in support of their daily requirements, as well as to produce a new vehicle policy and working protocols. 

A new Software system was also developed by the team to maintain an effective, organised technical support to the fleet service. The service has received positive feedback from many of our service users, particularly on the comfort of the new vehicles on longer journeys.

It is a great achievement by team and we wish them all the best at the finals in September.
