Asteral awarded place on new medical maintenance framework

Asteral, the UK’s leading vendor-independent managed equipment and managed maintenance service provider to the NHS, has been awarded a place on the North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOE CPC) Framework for Medical Equipment Maintenance.

The Framework, which went live on 2nd December 2013, offers its 39 members and associate members an additional route through which to procure medical equipment maintenance services from pre-approved and highly-qualified suppliers. The contract can also be accessed by non-members upon payment of a contract access fee. As an NOE CPC Framework provider, Asteral will offer a fully-managed, multi-vendor maintenance service that provides flexible and high-quality support for a wide range of critical medical equipment – Asteral Protect.

For every framework place awarded, Asteral has passed a series of rigorous checks – with every aspect of Asteral’s service, experience and contract examined to ensure that the service delivers the best possible value.

Christopher Langley, Asteral’s Chief Executive, said: “The NOE CPC Medical Equipment Maintenance Framework shows the growing appeal of multi-vendor maintenance services in the marketplace as a way to secure cash-savings for NHS Trusts. Through inclusion on this Framework, Asteral looks forward to enabling NHS Trusts to achieve these cash savings, whilst providing a quality service in line with clinical requirements.”
