We’ve won another testing centre contract!

We’ve won another new contract worth up to £365 million to manage over 275 Coronavirus Test Centres and Mobile Testing Units.

Our team in Business Services has won another contract to manage 175 Regional and Local Coronavirus Test Sites and over 100 Mobile Testing Units (MTUs) across England, Scotland and Wales.

Over the past year, we’ve delivered cleaning, clinical waste management and security services for 138 Test Centres and 58 MTUs as part of our ongoing support for the UK in the fight against Coronavirus. Our contract has been expanded because of our skill and experience and over 11,000 of our colleagues will work in the centres to support local communities in identifying and controlling infections. It’s another example of how we’re on the frontline of the fight against Covid. We’re delivering services at hundreds of critical sites, like supermarkets, hospitals, nuclear facilities, and transport hubs.

Simon Venn, Chief Government and Strategy Officer, Mitie, said:

“For over a year we’ve been managing test centres across the UK, supporting the fight against Coronavirus. As lockdown restrictions continue to ease and we enter a new phase of the pandemic, we stand ready to support local communities to respond to potential outbreaks and help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. We look forward to using our experience delivering services for test centres to help keep the UK running.”
