Sewell Group become proud Hull KR stadium partner

At the start of the year, Hull KR announced that Sewell Group were to become their prestigious stadium naming rights partner. The deal sees the stadium referred to as Sewell Group Craven Park now and has been the start of an exciting new partnership cementing Sewell Group and Hull KR at the heart of the East Hull Community.

We end the year on strong footing, and look forward to what 2023 has in store for both businesses.

Chair of Sewell Group, Paul Sewell,  was looking forward to investing back into the local community and commented:

“We see this partnership as another great way of giving back to the community which we’ve been part of since 1876. We know the fantastic work Hull KR do in the local area to support and improve the health and wellbeing of the community, through the fantastic schemes they run. We’re delighted to be able to support this, and the club, in their journey on the eve of their 140th anniversary.”

Community Diagnostic Centres set to ensure earlier tests closer to home

Patients across the region will benefit from earlier tests closer to home as plans to open Community Diagnostic Centres in key areas progress to meet population and demographic needs.

The centres will be situated in locations across the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership region, which covers Hull, the East Riding, North and North East Lincolnshire, and York and North Yorkshire.

The facilities will be dedicated to faster, easier and more direct access to tests associated with conditions such as cancer, breathlessness and ophthalmology, as well as offering blood tests and scans, resulting in reduced waiting times and less pressure on acute NHS services.

Shared Agenda is providing the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership with programme management and business case support to gather and analyse data to establish where the centres need to be situated to meet local population needs.

Shared Agenda drive major development

Progress is being made on the £200 million Yorkshire Energy Park, a major development scheme that will create up to 4,480 jobs in the Humber, attracting a significant inward investment in the heart of the UK’s Energy Estuary.

The development has many complexities which have involved financials, legal elements, commercial viability, national political interest, managing technical teams and everything associated with a scheme of this scale.

Sewell Facilities Management support Citycare in reducing energy costs across health estate

Sewell Facilities Management have been working with Hull-based LIFT company, Citycare, to help realise its decarbonisation ambitions and reduce energy usage across its estate.

The Facilities Management team have carried out energy audits across the 13 LIFT buildings in the city and identified simple measures to reduce energy consumption across the full health estate.

Working alongside energy auditors, Maloney Associates, the team have identified key areas to improve and upgrade to bring the health centres more in line with modern, sustainable building standards. In line with the Community Health Partnerships’ (CHP) Green Plan, Sewell has so far upgraded a significant 3,065 lights to LEDs, which means they’re almost half-way complete.
