The new commercial agreement recognises the importance of public sector construction as a key driver of economic recovery, providing health bodies in England with a new route to market for construction works and associated services, and helping the UK to build back better.

Ben Elliott, growth and innovation director at ISG, commented: “The criticality of our healthcare estate and the fundamental role it plays in our society have been self-evident over the past two years, and proved a core driver for our teams working to secure a place on the P23 framework. The opportunity to play a key role in developing and delivering future healthcare facilities, rooted in the Construction Playbook principles of collaboration, innovation, sustainability and social value outcomes, is fully aligned with our vision to create a positive legacy in everything we do. Our success across all targeted value bands, from sub £20m through to over £70m projects, illustrates the strength and depth of our healthcare offer, recognising our commitment to maximising outcomes across every project, regardless of size and value.”
