For every framework place awarded, Althea has passed a series of rigorous checks – with every aspect of our service, experience and contract examined to ensure that the service delivers the best possible value.

Althea’s Chief Executive, said: “The NOE CPC Medical Equipment Maintenance Framework shows the growing appeal of multi-vendor maintenance services in the marketplace as a way to secure cash-savings for NHS Trusts.  Through inclusion on this Framework, we look forward to enabling NHS Trusts to achieve these cash savings, whilst providing a quality service in line with clinical requirements.”
