NHS Property Services has a dedicated team responsible for reviewing opportunities relating to offices. As well as managing the offices in our own portfolio, we provide consultancy services to the wider health sector including the Department of Health and Social Care office portfolio and the wider NHS office estate.

Our focus is on driving value by managing lease events, enabling disposals and analysing portfolios to look for opportunities to consolidate and rationalise offices. We support customers as they make decisions about the options available to them.

The National Office Programme team has a strong track record; our advice has generated a five-year NHS system saving of £75M to date, with significant potential for further cost savings over the next few years.

We support the NHS with:

  • Lease events management: options assessments to inform decision making related to office lease events such as breaks and expires
  • Supporting office rationalisation and relocations to release leasehold space and freehold properties for disposal
  • Providing project oversight and best practice for office consolidation projects nationally
  • Supporting the national office portfolio management of the Department of Health and Social Care, and various NHS bodies
  • Leading on the NHSPS Hub strategy programme for all of our core management office locations
  • Promoting agile, modern working environments when refurbishing as part of consolidating or relocating
