Consultant to carry out strategic review of NHS community partners’ £550m estate

Capita Symonds has been hired by NHS community partners across Leicestershire and Rutland to carry out a strategic review of their £550m estate.

During a two stage exercise, Capita will look at the options for the 496,000m2 estate which is made up of a mix of over 160 NHS owned buildings including acute hospitals, community hospitals, a wide range of community facilities, and NHS owned GP practices.

The firm will work on behalf of NHS Leicestershire County and Rutland, NHS Leicester City, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and Leicester Partnership NHS Trust.

Helen Seth, LLR QIPP executive lead for capacity and assets, said: “NHS partners across LLR have agreed to work together to define what buildings are needed to meet the health needs of the local population both now and in the future.

“Whilst doing this we also need to deliver better outcomes for our patients and transform the way in which we use our assets to support the services we deliver.”
