Our world 2017
At the new NHS Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, which began receiving patients in December, our work includes delivering vital services such as maintaining the hospital’s plumbing, heating, lighting, electrics and fire safety systems, ensuring a safe and comfortable environment and supporting the wellbeing of patients, visitors and staff.
Prior to commencing the contract we engaged with Dumfries and Galloway Employment Total Access Point (DGTAP) as our local employment partner to ensure as many people as possible from the local community could benefit from the employment opportunities available, including those who have previously been long-term unemployed. The positions recruited for included technicians and senior technicians, craft roles and a service coordinator.
“We want to hire talented people who live in the local area so we can give the hospital a real community feel,” said Site Manager, Duncan MacLure. “Our aim is to build a team of people who are passionate about maintaining this fantastic new facility in the very best condition, supporting the hospital to provide the highest standards of care for the people of Dumfries and Galloway.”
