North Staffs LIFT - PPF Awards 'LIFT Company of the Year'

Last night, Prima 200 was awarded the prestigious 'LIFT Company of the Year' award at the national Public Private Finance Awards 2010 in London.

Prima 200 was recognised for its contribution to the improvement of health and social care services in North Staffordshire and the substantial investment that has been made into the area over the past five years.

Ann Pursey, Chief Executive of Prima 200 said: "It is fantastic that Prima 200 and its partners have been recognised for consistently delivering what is wanted and always to a very high standard. Our new and refurbished buildings are assisting the local PCTs and other partners to deliver much needed improvements in health and social care for communities across North Staffordshire. My thanks go to all of our partners, in particular the teams at NHS North Staffordshire and NHS Stoke on Trent, and Prime. The Award is a reflection of how well the partnership between the public and private sectors is working in North Staffordshire and the difference we are making to local people"

During 2008 - 2009, Prima 200 delivered six developments, including Mill Rise Extra Care residential village where 60 people now live.

Prima 200 has a number of schemes in development which are expected to start construction during 2010/11 in order to deliver the PCT's strategic healthcare requirements.
