Next Four Years Promising for the Facilities Management Marketplace

Cleaned Reception AreaAccording to the latest research, things are looking up for facilities management in the UK over the next four years to 2017. A report has been published by a market research firm that has pointed to a rise from £106.3 billion to £117 billion over the years from 2013 to 2017. The research uses the 2012 figure of £106.3 billion as a starting point.

The effect of outsourcing

The increase in growth in this sector is thought to be partly due to the trend for outsourcing. Companies that are able to offer integrated services and options that provide several solutions all rolled into one are thought to have more chance of achieving a higher level of success.

The research also points to an opportunity to expand outsourcing within the public sector: something that has not been seen en-masse in the past. All in all the estimated figure for outsourcing services in the next four years is expected to rise by approximately 9% overall.

Choosing the right company to help

As more and more businesses look to outsource their facilities requirements, companies like ProCare are looking forward to being even more in demand.

We have both – with more than three decades in the business and many employees that have been with us for years. So if you are considering outsourcing your facilities cleaning work then please contact us for a free proposal.

 

We look forward to playing an active role in the ever expanding facilities management marketplace in the next few years – and beyond.

New Measures Called for to Tackle Untreatable Superbugs

Doctors SurgeryWe have all heard about the prevalence of superbugs in hospitals, most notably MRSA, in recent times. However it would appear there are more bugs taking hold and causing real problems for healthcare facilities across the world. While recent reports have concentrated on problems in the USA, the threat is by no means restricted to America.

The Chief Medical Office in England, Professor Dame Sally Davies, has pointed out the “catastrophic threat” presented to us by these superbugs is not one that can be ignored. She even went as far as to say there was a real concern we would go back to the health system similar in nature to the one present in the “early 19th century”.

Too many antibiotics

It has been thought for some time that antibiotics are too frequently prescribed to patients, leading to them becoming almost useless as our bodies get used to them. Furthermore, there have been few new developments of antibiotics in the past few years, so we will be unable to tackle diseases as successfully as we have done in the past.

The importance of cleanliness

Cleanliness is vital in helping to prevent the spread of bugs like these, especially in clinical surroundings. However, cleanliness in all places is vital if we want to stop bugs from spreading from one person to another.

That’s why ProCare provide sanitary and cleaning services for medical institutions and many other locations, to help in the fight against superbugs. These services meet the requirements of the Care Quality Commission.

ProCare may not be able to create new antibiotics, but we can help you to prevent the spread of infection on a daily basis. Contact us today for more information.
