Sodexo extends collaboration with Royal Stoke & Haywood hospitals
Sodexo Health & Care has reinforced its long-standing relationship with the Royal Stoke University Hospital (RSUH), part of the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM), and Haywood Hospital, part of the wider Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT).

Valued at £38 million per year, Sodexo will continue to deliver catering, retail and soft FM services throughout the Private Finance Initiative and the retained estate at both hospitals.

Caring for more than two million people a year, UHNM is highly regarded for its facilities, teaching and research. Sodexo’s 1,000-strong on-site team delivers domestic, portering, patient catering, retail, security, helpdesk, waste, pest control and distribution services at both hospitals.  

As part of the new contract Sodexo installed a ‘ground-breaking’ automated retail solution the 24/7 Deli within the restaurant in spring 2023. The new 24/7 Deli provides frontline healthcare workers and visitors access to fresh, nutritious hot and cold food options throughout the day and night.  

Philip Leigh, chief executive of Health & Care at Sodexo UK & Ireland, said: “As a purpose-led business, we continue to support the Trusts with their social value commitments, aligning our ambition to their Sustainable Development Management Plan through initiatives such as an energy saving plan for both hospitals. We will continue to seek ways in which we can support both organisations in providing the highest standard of care for the people we jointly serve every year.”
