It follows the announcement that MWD Healthcare, an alliance between Mace and Willmott Dixon won the £126m New Urgent and Emergency Care Centre at Derriford in Plymouth.
Procured using the Procure Partnerships framework, Bolton College of Medical Sciences will provide training opportunities for healthcare workers in what is intended as a transformational blueprint for training NHS staff.
The project is a collaboration between the University of Bolton, Bolton College, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and Bolton Council, designed to give people a direct route into clinical healthcare employment, with a focus on practical, skills-based learning in a live hospital environment.
As part of the programme, Willmott Dixon will deliver £6m in social value for the community, largely through local employment and supply-chain expenditure.
Anthony Dillon, Managing Director for Willmott Dixon in the North, said the project is due to complete in 2024, when the first intake of BCMS learners is due to start.
