Major NHS Wheelchair Services contract win for AJM Healthcare following MBO
AJM Healthcare has been awarded a major contract for the NHS Wheelchair Service for Adults and Children across Derbyshire following its recent management buy-out (MBO).
Delivering services to a population of over two million, AJM was selected following a tender competition which the company says focused on quality, with a weighting of 90 percent.
Mark Perress, Chief Executive Officer for AJM Healthcare, commented: “The extent to which commissioners investigated our services within the tender was very thorough and confirms the quality of our services are second to none.
“We have worked very hard on creating a service model and a culture that is service user-centric and progressively developed with innovation and thought leadership from our clinical teams. This is backed up by facts, figures, evidence and proof.”
The service will work with the Derbyshire Wheelchair Service Review Group to ensure transparency and deliver a range of improvements, including providing a Personal Wheelchair Budgets scheme to support choice and control.
Aiming to address the balance of health inequalities within the county, the service will be promoted to minority groups, hard-to-reach and ‘seldom heard from’ groups.
