Serco to run NHS services in Suffolk in £140m deal 

Location: UK » East of England » IP

Serco has been appointed as preferred bidder to run services outsourced by NHS Suffolk in a deal likely to go ahead within months (in 2012).

Under the deal, Serco will take on services including community nursing, specialist nursing, management and operation of community hospitals, speech and language therapy, specialist children’s services and community equipment services.

Around 1,000 NHS staff are expected to be transferred to the firm as part of the deal.

The company will work with NHS and third sector partners to deliver the services, including the South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust and a community interest company specialising in providing dentistry to vulnerable groups.

Serco already provides outsourced NHS services including out-of-hours GP care in Cornwall, a range of occupational health services, pathology services, and manages Braintree Community Hospital.
