Compton Care appoints BAM to build £2.5m care co-ordination centre


BAM selected through P22 Construction Procurement Framework to enhance care available for people with complex and incurable conditions

Midlands-based charity, Compton Care, has appointed BAM construction to deliver its £2.5m care co-ordination centre – a facility set to revolutionise care provision for people with long-term, complex and incurable conditions.

The centre is a key part of Compton's new clinical strategy, launched recently alongside a new identity that saw it drop 'hospice' from its name in order to challenge perceptions and break down barriers to palliative care.

Funded mostly through a donation from former members of the Unite Union Goodyear Wolverhampton branch, it will enable the charity to effectively co-ordinate its services from one central point in order to create a more-responsive service for people living with complex and incurable conditions.

BAM was selected as the successful company from a series of applications submitted through the ProCure22 (P22) – a construction procurement framework for the public sector.

Construction work is expected to begin on site later this month.
