OCS has extended its contract to deliver security guarding and emergency helipad response services at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool – a contract the business has held since 2011. The new agreement was awarded to OCS after a rigorous re-tender process and keeps the company on site for a further three years from 1 March 2018.
Petra Moss, managing director for OCS Healthcare and Education, commented: “It’s fantastic that we have been able to extend our agreement with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. This renewal is indicative of OCS’ standing in the healthcare arena and our ability to deliver services that ultimately improve patient comfort and satisfaction.”

The hospital serves over 275,000 children and young people in Merseyside and the North West of England every year.
