NHS Property Services (South of Tyne)

We were commissioned in 2012 to provide asbestos management services to NHS South of Tyne.  Working under a third party contractor, we were required to interrogate existing data looking for missing survey information. This meant looking at areas where ‘no access’ or ‘limited access’ was found, and where we felt information needed clarification – for example, where room refurbishment had occurred. We applied any information found further to original asbestos management survey data from refurbishment surveys or removal works.

The alternative to this would have required NHS South of Tyne to resurvey its whole property portfolio, which would not have been cost effective. Since our surveys covered missing or incomplete data, only three full resurveys were required from three regions covering 17 properties.

As a result of this work, we were also commissioned to carry out air testing and survey work with NHS South of Tyne.

Since carrying out the initial work, we have become the preferred contract for NHS South of Tyne. We have also been asked to provide:

  • Micad Internet Property Register training for the ‘Asbestos Module’ of the database.
  • Asbestos awareness training.
  • Development of the trust’s asbestos management policy and management plan.

During a recent review by our Health and Safety consultant, it was noted that a Legionella Risk Assessment was necessary for our studio. We contacted Franks Portlock who undertook a full review of the premises and provided us with a greater understanding of the UK regulations and requirements. Sean Green supplied us with a detailed Legionella risk assessment and offered pragmatic advice and guidance on the procedures required to remain compliant, the whole process was seamless from start to finish.. Sean attention to detail and dedication was faultless throughout the entire process and it was a pleasure to work with both him and the team.

The de Ferrers Trust

Six months ago, we instructed Sean and the team at Franks Portlock for their services in Water Hygiene and we have been blown away by the service he has provided us. We have a number of different schools on board with him that range from full water hygiene monthly management, to RA's and Annual services. When tendering we found that Frank's Portlocks cost were similar to what we were already paying, however the level of detail that the contract covers far outweighs any previous contract we've ever had. The Monthly meetings have made a massive difference in ensuring that faults and risk items are dealt with promptly and appropriately. As the person who oversees compliance across our trust, I no longer have to worry about the water hygiene compliance in our schools that use Franks Portlock.
