“This was a fast Track programme; it was a high profile “signature” project for the Northern Health and Social Care Trust, with intense ministerial scrutiny. The Trust required a trusted partner capable of delivering a high specification within a tight timescale within a “live” acute hospital environment. Fado delivered on all three criteria. It has been a pleasure working with the Fado team, their drive, inspiration and ability to “look outside the box” and commitment to the project is to be highly commended.”
