In the North East and Yorkshire

At NHS Property Services, our focus is providing local services in a clear and transparent way, that meet and anticipate your needs.

During a period of tremendous change for the NHS with the emergence of Integrated Care Partnerships (ICSs) and Primary Care Networks (PCNs), as well as the impact of COVID-19 on care provision and estates, different types of spaces are required to deliver care to local communities.

We are committed to working closely with our partners across ICSs and PCNs in the North East and Yorkshire to understand the needs, challenges and opportunities that exist within your communities. We want to support you with your clinical strategies by not only ensuring your estate needs are met, but to really help you get the most from your estate so you can deliver excellent patient care.

A word from Karina...

My role as your Regional Partnership Director is to support my colleagues in the North East and Yorkshire region to optimise and transform the NHS estate in line with your clinical strategies. We're working closely with our customers to deliver a number of exciting projects that we've already made good headway on in the first quarter of 2020/21.

We've launched four social prescribing sites across the region so far, including a social prescribing hub in the Ironstone Centre. We're also on track to finish works at two key sites by the end of this year - Whitby Hospital and Stokesley Health Centre. We're working to further develop or deliver 49 key projects in the area this year, including refurbishments, redevelopments and accessibility works.

We’re also continuing to support our customers with the COVID-19 vaccination rollout with 35 vaccination sites in operation within our portfolio across the North East and Yorkshire.

Looking ahead to the autumn months and the launch of the 2021 flu vaccination programme, we've been working with customers to anticipate additional space needs and plan for a busy winter.

Across the ICSs we support, here are some examples of the ways we're enabling better care in your area:

  • Humber Coast and Vale – work is continuing to modernise and remodel Whitby Hospital and refurbishment work is currently underway for Stokesley Health Centre.
  • North East and North Cumbria – work is continuing to modernise and remodel Guisborough Primary Care Hospital to create additional GP capacity at Bedlington.
  • South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System – the system is currently revising its estates strategy and it has been great to get involved with that work, and projects are progressing at Beighton and Fairlawns to improve primary care and community capacity.
  • West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership – it was wonderful to see the completion of a new dementia-friendly garden at Westwood Park Hospital.

If you need assistance with anything, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me directly or contact our Customer Support Centre on 0800 085 3015. I look forward to our continued partnership in 2021/22.
