Equipment Advisory & Procurement support to Midland Metropolitan


Toby Lewis, Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust’s Chief Executive
August 2018
MTS – Equipment Advisors
MTS continue Equipment Advisory and Procurement support to Midland Metropolitan. MTS’s Andrew Frost and Steve Nolan are leading this project for MTS for Midland Metropolitan Hospital; MTS has been Trust Advisor since 2007 and this is the latest update from the Trust Website.

Trust’s plan to finish the Midland Metropolitan Hospital gets Government approval and public funding

Breaking News:
Eight months after the collapse of Carillion, and the consequent pause on construction of the new Midland Metropolitan Hospital in Smethwick, the project’s future has been secured.
The new build will be the main acute hospital for almost three quarters of a million people across north and west Birmingham and the borough of Sandwell. Completion will unlock resources to invest more in local general practice and mental health services and is the centrepiece of a strategy for integrated care which is at the forefront of the NHS Five Year Forward View, and anticipates the ten year plan for the NHS, due to be unveiled later in 2018.
In early August 2018, Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust launched a competition to win an enabling works contract to prevent the deterioration of the construction site. That contract is to be awarded in September.
At the same time, the Board of the Trust reversed prior decisions to proceed on a private finance model and opted for a direct contract with a building contractor to finish the new hospital, with funds to be provided from central Government. This proposal was submitted to the Department of Health and Social Care and to the Treasury on August 2nd.
Now Minister of State for Health, Steve Barclay MP, has confirmed the position:
“Our long-term plan will see the NHS receive £20.5 billion a year more than it currently does by 2023, but our commitment does not stop there, as this important partnership shows.
“By taking this bold step, we are not only giving patients in Sandwell and west Birmingham world-class NHS facilities on their doorstep but also showing our determination to build an NHS fit for the future – all whilst making sure taxpayers’ money is spent in the best possible way”.
Commenting on the announcement by Government, Trust Chief Executive Toby Lewis said:
“This is absolutely fantastic news. After a huge amount of work by teams across Whitehall and the Trust, and with the voices of local residents, clinicians, and stakeholders having been being clearly heard, we are delighted that we now have a definitive publicly financed plan. We will continue to engage with the construction market over coming weeks and build towards a formal procurement by November this year. We always said Midland Met would be delivered and the doubters were wrong. The Prime Minister’s promise is being honoured.
“Midland Met will open in 2022, and by then our partnerships with local GPs, schools and care homes will be even deeper and more integrated than today. This is a vote of confidence in our publicly financed construction plan, and in our STP strategy as a whole. The new hospital is about improving the outcomes of patient care and about regeneration and public health. We need to finish the job and seize the benefits.”

MTS Director Abseils for Guy’s & St Thomas’ Charity

MTS Director Abseils for Guy’s & St Thomas’ Charity


MTS’s Ruth Strickland (didn’t) conquer her fear of heights when she abseiled down Guy’s and St Thomas’ Tower on the 11th May 2018 to raise money for their fund raising for a new ECMO machine.
MTS sponsored the “Katie’s Angels” jump in honour of her friend Katie Tinkler who survived sepsis thanks to the ECMO team at Guys Hospital. The collective group raised over £20,500 towards the £65k to buy a new ECMO.
‘Guy’s and St Thomas’ is one of five specialised commissioned ECMO services within the UK. ECMO stands for Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation. It’s a bit like putting a patient on an artificial lung or heart machine. They cover a region of about 17 million people (adults, not children). There are currently seven consultants on call 24/7 and 365 days a year.
Any of the 42 hospitals in the region can call them and ask for advice about patient with lung and heart failure. If we think it is appropriate, we will go with a team in an ambulance and put the patient on the ECMO system in their hospital’s operating theatre. We will stabilise and patient and bring them back to St Thomas’.
