Maintenance service for The Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital

Althea has been appointed by The Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to provide maintenance for 16 items of Radiology equipment.  Under the terms of the agreement the Trust will also have access to our independent imaging evaluation team to support future procurement decisions.

The two-year maintenance service replaces the Trust’s previous maintenance agreements, consolidating them into a single arrangement to provide measurable cost and efficiency savings.

Our maintenance services uses a combination of engineers from the original equipment manufacturers and independent service organisations including our staff with all calls managed by the Althea Service Centre, ensuring clinical staff have just one point of contact for all assets under management.

The Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will also benefit from industry leading equipment uptime, detailed reporting on equipment performance and continued compliance with all relevant quality standards such as CQC, NHSLA, plus current publications of the MHRA and IPEM Report 95.

Althea’s CEO says: “As the NHS evolves there is a genuine opportunity for Trusts to re-evaluate how they manage and maintain medical equipment. By bringing together existing maintenance contracts into a single arrangement, we are able to deliver significant cost savings while ensuring that clinical staff have access to more reliable and productive equipment.
