Service provider joins medical equipment maintenance framework


Asteral, a UK 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. In addition, Asteral will be offering it's new premium maintenance service Asteral Protect+ delivered by its own qualified engineers. This new service will be available 7-days-a-week as standard (including out of hours planned preventative maintenance, and weekend reactive maintenance). Asteral Protect+ is designed to assist NHS hospitals to optimise equipment availability, reduce patient cancellations, and meet the demands of delivering patient care 7 days a week. 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.  We are delighted to add Asteral Protect+ to our range of Equipment-as-a-Service initiatives, aligned with the growing demand for clinical services to be delivered 7 days a week.”
