RELOCATION, RELOCATION


In 2014, NHS Scotland partnered with Business Moves Group (BMG), a relocation specialist. Tomorrow’s FM spoke to Jack Kane, the company’s lead on the account, about the collaboration.


Business relocation is about far more than ensuring furniture turns up at the right place at the right time. Relocation specialists are responsible for the safe delivery of valuable and delicate items which may require specialist transport and storage.


This expertise is the reason NHS Scotland partnered with Business Moves Group (BMG) in 2014, and the reason that this partnership has grown over the last six years.


The first project that BMG managed was the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital project. This was a huge project which took place over the course of 10 months. Since then, BMG has regularly supported NHS Scotland with other relocation projects.


Support during the pandemic In March 2020, NHS Scotland approached BMG to ask for support in the distribution of vital medical supplies and equipment. The BMG team jumped at the opportunity to help during the pandemic.


To date, BMG has distributed over 500 pieces of equipment and thousands of consumables including ventilators, incubators, and syringe pumps, covering more than 10,500 miles in the process. Much of the equipment has been vital in providing vital medical care for cases of COVID-19.

Why a relocation specialist? Usually, such medical equipment delivery would be handled by logistics teams within the NHS but during the pandemic, demand has been extreme. Equipment had been delivered from countries throughout Europe, and needed to be collected and delivered to hospitals and clinics across the country. Doing so rapidly and efficiently was a huge challenge, which is why the NHS decided to bring in specialists.


“The vehicles carrying particularly


valuable resources are GPS-tracked and can be escorted if necessary.”


Delivery of medical equipment may not fall within the day-to-day remit of a relocation specialist. However, BMG had the experience, network and ability to adapt to this new challenge better than most. Indeed, NHS Scotland approached BMG on a Friday and, after an intensive weekend of training, the team was ready to mobilise the following Monday.
