Simon Taylor is Portfolio Optimisation Director at NHS Property Services, with a core objective to work with ICSs, 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.

Before joining NHSPS in 2018, Simon supported the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the two 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.
