The Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in the UK has selected Galliford Try to construct the new Pathway Unit.

This unit is part of the five-year expansion strategy for the hospital campus.

Galliford Try’s Building East Midlands business has secured the £14m contract.

The Pathway Unit will offer improved integrated access to primary care, community and mental health services and social care for patients with several or complex requirements and are in need to attend the Accident and Emergency Department.

It will feature 26 beds and 16 assessment rooms.

The contract comes following the completion of the hospital’s new Cancer Centre last year by Galliford Try.

Galliford Try Building East Midlands managing director Jon Marston said: “We are delighted that MKUH has entrusted with the construction of this new building which provides a key part of their new masterplan. We look forward to working with them to deliver the high-quality facilities that their patients and the people of the region deserve.”

In December 2020, Galliford Try’s Building business was appointed to £10.5bn NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) framework.

The business was chosen in the national lot 4 for projects between £15m-£35m and in 11 regional lots of lot 3, for projects worth between £5m and £15m.

NHS SBS operates several frameworks across a range of procurement activity within the health service.
