A new contract to provide fire extinguisher maintenance services at more than 50 sites belonging to or managed by the Derbyshire Community Health Services (DCHS) NHS Foundation Trust has gone to Chubb Fire & Security Limited.
Hospitals, private general practitioner offices, health centres and dental surgeries are all included in the three-year contract. Chubb will ensure more than 1,500 fire extinguishers and fire blankets are regularly serviced and maintained to British Standards to protect patients, employees and assets.
Emma Morten, procurement officer, DCHS said: “We have worked with Chubb previously and it is good to be working with them again. The sales team and engineers are superb and there has been a seamless process from signing the contract to mobilisation.”
On being awarded the contract, Chubb serviced all of the fire extinguishers at each site. Emma Morten added: “The contract is flexible and we are continually adding sites at very short notice. This is a great advantage to us.”
DCHS provides care for more than 4,000 patients every day in 13 community hospitals and 28 health centres. As one of the largest providers of specialist community health services in the country, it’s serving a patient population of more than one million people.
