About us

NHS Property Services brings property and facilities management expertise to the NHS estate. At a time of major change and increasing demand for the NHS, we are reducing costs, creating a more fit for purpose estate and generating vital funds that are being reinvested to support improvements in frontline patient care.


Our portfolio consists of 3,500 buildings – worth over £3 billion – which represents around 10 percent of the entire NHS estate. The vast majority of our sites are used for clinical, local healthcare and fall into one of three categories:

  • Health centres and GP surgeries
  • Hospitals/hospital-related properties
  • Offices


The company has a major role as both landlord and service provider for our NHS customers. Our services fall into four main business areas:

  1. Strategic estates planning – supporting our customers to deliver healthcare premises that meet future needs for patient services
  2. Asset management – acting as landlord, disposing of surplus properties that commissioners decide are no longer needed, regularising leases and developing new facilities
  3. Construction project management – managing the development of new buildings and refurbishment of existing buildings, along with investment in our estate
  4. Facilities management services – including health and safety, maintenance, electrical services, cleaning and catering
