The Atlas show is on the road!

The Atlas BFW Management Ltd (Atlas) team started the first in a series of roadshows, planned over the next 12 months aimed at engaging with Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust) staff, patients, service users and visitors.

The inaugural roadshow, saw some of Atlas’ team take up residence on the mezzanine floor at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, where they answered questions from passing staff, service users and visitors about all aspects of the new company, from what they do, where they are based, as well as their existing work and future plans.

Based at Ainscoe House in the grounds of Blackpool Victoria Hospital, Atlas, a property and facilities management services company, which is wholly owned by the Trust – operates an Alternative Delivery Model, which commenced in March 2017.

Stephen Waterfield, Atlas’ Chief Executive Officer said: “From our launch in March this year, our entire team has been working flat-out to get Atlas up and running. What an achievement!

Today was a fantastic opportunity to get out and speak to staff, service users and visitors about Atlas and to field their questions.”

Stephen adds: “Over the coming months, we’ll be holding more roadshows here in Blackpool and also out in the Trust’s community sites.

New sessions will focus on specific functions of Atlas from Capital and Property, to Medical Engineering and Facilities Management.

Our next stop is the Trust’s Annual General Meeting taking place on 21 September at Blackpool College.”
