THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
With Government considering the future of the NHS estate over the coming years - and the publication of the Naylor Review of the role of land and buildings in supporting transformation in the NHS - this timely seminar will assess priorities for policy going forward.
Delegates will discuss plans to release surplus NHS land in the context of goals in the NHS mandate for raising £2bn. They will also discuss strategies for freeing space for 26,000 new homes; the ‘Homes for Nurses’ scheme which will give 3,000 NHS workers first refusal on affordable housing generated through the sale of surplus NHS land, and for ensuring every CCG has a planned estates strategy.
Further sessions examine priorities for investment in the estate to upgrade practice infrastructure, in light of the announcement in the Autumn Budget of £3.5billion capital investment in estates transformation schemes, and the reported ‘primary care buildings pledge’ from a consortium of property investment companies, which would see an investment of £3.3bn to build 750 primary care centres in exchange for rent from the NHS of up to £200m-a-year.
The agenda also looks at the developing role of NHS England’s Estates and Technology Transformation Fund (ETTF).
