Simon Taylor, Head of Portfolio Optimisation

Head of Portfolio Optimisation

Simon manages a relatively new team at NHS Property Services (NHSPS), with a core objective to work with Commissioners and other local stakeholders to develop solutions that encourage more effective delivery of NHS services. This can be done through property consolidation, improved utilisation, enabling disposals, re-purposing the estate to support new models of care and, where relevant, the “right-sizing” of new developments.

Simon joined NHSPS in 2018 to establish and lead the Portfolio Optimisation function within their Asset Management department.

Before joining NHSPS Simon supported the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the 2 property companies with the strategic estate planning programmes, supported Sir Robert Naylor in undertaking his estates review and also to lead the combined DHSC sponsored Strategic Estate Planning team.

Simon has over 30 years’ experience working in the real estate sector, including over 10 years as Head of Property Strategy for Telereal Trillium where he provided estate transformation and delivery services to public and private sector clients.
