Whether reconfiguring old sites, continuing maintenance programmes, or building brand-new facilities – evolving the estate has an important role to play in delivering safe, quality care.
The requirements of the NHS estate are radically changing, with services increasingly shifting to community settings, more staff working from home as well as the demands and requirements of the hospital setting changing with a post-pandemic transition to virtual care and new models of outpatient clinics. The NHS estate also has a huge contribution to make towards achieving net zero targets.
With this long list of demands and priorities, it is increasingly difficult for healthcare estates teams to drive transformation and change. Faced with a lack of capital for new projects, a burgeoning maintenance backlog, a cost-of-living crisis and increasing energy costs – working with partners to create innovative, cost-effective and flexible solutions has never been more important.
This award celebrates the role of private sector organisations, including buildings and engineering contractors in supporting the NHS to drive estates transformation and optimisation within the resources available – recognising both small and large projects that can demonstrate a positive impact to patient care.
- This award is open to any private or not-for-profit business which works in partnership with an NHS organisation in the field of buildings, engineering, facilities or estates management.
- These can be single partnerships or joint working projects, but must demonstrate evidence from the past two years up until the awards deadline date.
