David Nisbet, Partner at Pick Everard confirms, “We’re delighted to have been appointed to the NHS SBS framework. We know from our long project history in healthcare and delivery of over fifty health projects in the last three years in acute, mental health and primary care settings in NHS Trusts that the most successful projects require design excellence combined with efficient cost management.“
With its head office in Leicester and regional offices in Bury St Edmunds, Cardiff, Derby, Glasgow, Inverness, London, Nottingham and Taunton, Pick Everard is one of several suppliers appointed to the national framework.
