At the beginning of 2020 Vanguard Healthcare Solutions acquired a facility for the development, build and fulfilment of modular and pre-fabricated healthcare buildings to complement its existing mobile healthcare fleet established over 20 years ago. With instillation of its modular healthcare buildings rapidly increasing across the NHS a new procurement route has been established. Vanguard has been awarded a place on NHS Commercial Solutions Framework for Modular and pre-fabricated buildings. The framework has been established to provide a range of quick routes to market and services to help enable NHS Estates and Facilities teams to meet their performance goals and statutory requirements.
