We offered a warm welcome to security and reception teams that joined Barts Health today from Serco.
Earlier this year, we made a decision to bring our soft facilities services back in-house. Today marks the start of this transition with 135 people joining the trust.
"We are so pleased to welcome our security and reception teams into the NHS today," said Mark Bagnall, director of estates and facilities.
Phone lines and numbers will remain unchanged, and you can contact teams in the usual way.
A further 1,600 people from Serco will join the trust next year in key roles including portering, cleaning and domestics.
Following the transition of employment from Serco to the trust, we will work with teams to make improvements to the way our soft facilities services operate to improve the experience for patients, visitors and staff.
