Case Study: Sodexo partnership with University Hospital of North Midlands NHS Trust

The relationship between Sodexo and the University Hospital of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) began in 2007, when the former was appointed as the PFI FM provider to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust. This later merged with the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust to form UHNM in 2014.


The partnership has since received an NHS Sustainability Award in 2017 as well as external recognition, winning ‘Partners in Healthcare’ at the PFM Awards in 2017 and both ‘Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Partnership of the Year’ at the HSJ Awards in 2018.


This case study demonstrates the benefits of investing in partnership working and the positive outcomes it can have for all parties involved.
