NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) has granted LeasePlan UK a four-year contract extension, furthering the firms’ 24-year partnership.
Under the contract, LeasePlan UK will continue to deliver a fleet of bespoke vehicles, including small car-derived vans, fast response vehicles, large vans and refrigerated trucks, which will be used to provide front-line support for the NHS’s dedicated Blood and Transplant services.
John Lowden, national fleet engineer, NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “These vehicles are an essential part of the service we provide at NHSBT, and are vital to our mission to save and improve lives. Given the scale and necessity of these vehicles, we require a partner who understands our very specific needs – a challenge which LeasePlan UK has continued to embrace for over two decades.”
Alfonso Martinez, managing director at LeasePlan UK, also commented, saying: “The decision by NHSBT to renew our contract for a further four years, building upon our 24-year partnership, is testament to the strength of our client relationships, our highly personalised approach, and the breadth of knowledge and expertise we possess here at LeasePlan UK.”
