UK Mail has won a two-year print and mailing contract with the NHS in Hampshire, with a further two-year extension also available.

UK Mail won the contract with its imail hybrid delivery service, launched in 2008, which allows customers to electronically transmit mail items to a national network of mail centres where the mail is then printed, enveloped and posted for next day delivery.

The contract, which was awarded following an open tender run by Government Procurement Services, covers the four Primary Care Trusts (PCT) in the county, which work with over 500 local NHS partners and are responsible for investing in healthcare services for the local community.

Andy Barber, imail general manager, said: "We are delighted to announce the news of this contract win. After undergoing a rigorous tender process we have proven our in-depth understanding of the requirements needed to provide services into the NHS.

"Having already gained the NHS CFH accreditation, it reinforces the quality service imail provides and we're beginning to see an increasing interest from the public sector. We've continuously worked to develop the service further, transforming the way thousands of businesses and now local authorities are sending mail."

Craig Rodell, facilities manager for Hampshire & Isle of Wight PPSA, added: "The PCT's committed to providing the community with the very highest standards of information. In order to do this, it's important that our health and wellbeing services are supported by efficient and cost-effective processes.  We are very pleased to be working with imail to deliver this."

Under the terms of the two year agreement, imail will be responsible for the printing, proofing and posting of letters, as well as the insertion of screening leaflets and any other forms of communications from Hampshire & Isle of Wight PPSA amounting to approximately 500,000 pieces of correspondence each year.
