Private Finance Initiative partners

The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust is proud to be associated with its Private Finance Initiative (PFI) partners, Summit Healthcare, Interserve Facilities Management, Siemens Medical Equipment and Sir Robert McAlpine.

In April 2000, Summit Healthcare – a consortium of Interserve plc, Halifax Bank of Scotland and Sir Robert McAlpine – was appointed as the preferred bidder for The Dudley Group Private Finance Initiative (PFI) project, Shaping the Future.

At the time, the Trust provided a number of healthcare services from four main sites at Russells Hall, Corbett, Guest and Wordsley, with many of the buildings dating back to the 19th century.

The scheme, which will be worth £1 billion over the 40 year term of the project, has centralised inpatient facilities at the refurbished and extended Russells Hall and has also involved the construction of new ambulatory care centres to provide outpatient care at the Corbett and Guest sites.
