Peter Whitmore, managing director at Morgan Sindall Construction in the east, said: “These improvements, across a number of important healthcare facilities in the county, will bring a wide range of valuable health and wellbeing benefits for communities in Essex.

”This will range from helping to speed up diagnosis within local settings and supercharging Southend’s surgical capabilities.”

The £9bn ProCure23 framework is for construction and design services for NHS projects. NHS England and the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) have collaborated to operate the four-year deal.

Other firms on the framework include Balfour Beatty, Bam, Galliford Try, Kier, Laing O’Rourke, Lendlease and Mace.
