One of NHS Property Services’ key priorities is to reduce vacant space in our estate. Vacant space is a drain on NHS funds that cannot be sustained as pressure on its services increases.

We have established the Vacant Space Handback Scheme to allow customers to release properties if they are no longer needed. By taking part in the scheme, we remove the burden of costs such as rent, business rates and service charges from customers, allowing them to use funds to provide the frontline care our communities need.

As well as saving money for customers, this approach gives others the opportunity to occupy the space. We use our property knowledge to reallocate any space released through re-letting, disposal or development.

If you are unsure your space qualifies for the scheme, please speak to the vacant space team by contacting:
