"This value partnership represents one of the largest and broadest in scope that Siemens Healthineers has."

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) has selected Siemens Healthineers to enter a 15-year technology and strategic partnership.

The value partnership includes the planning, installation, and maintenance of 222 pieces of critical medical equipment, with approximately 350 planned installations over the life of the contract.

A dedicated on-site team will ensure the guaranteed technology performance and ease administrative processes for MFT by providing a single point of contact for all technology-related matters, with the contract being worth approximately €140m.

The partnership also includes a training program for users in the imaging pathway. The equipment is designed to improve patient care and meet growing demand for imaging, as well as increase staff satisfaction and improve patient experience.

Catherine Walsh, divisional director of imaging for MFT, said: “This is so much more than a simple contract. It’s a 15-year Value Partnership; a relationship enabling us to provide the very best in care delivery for the people of Greater Manchester.

“Demand for our imaging services is increasing by five to 10% every year, yet we’ve had to reduce our throughput to deal safely with COVID-19. This new relationship gives us the confidence that we’ll be able to continue to invest in the latest technology with the flexibility to adapt it to our needs, now and into the future.

“All associated factors such as maintenance and budgeting are taken care of. Ultimately, the partnership will enable us to focus on delivering the best patient experience, while at the same time helping us to attract and retain leading talent and develop staff to unlock their full potential.”

Bernd Ohnesorge, president of Europe, Middle East and Africa at Siemens Healthineers, added: “This value partnership represents one of the largest and broadest in scope that Siemens Healthineers has, up to now, engaged in Europe.

“It will also serve as an example of how innovative partnership solutions can transform care delivery for healthcare providers globally.”
