NHS Property Services manages two types of facilities via a mixture of in-house and out-sourced services. These include:
Through delivering facilities management, we manage and deploy over 3,000 delivery staff, including specialist domestic services personnel, catering staff, skilled craftsmen and qualified professional FM managers. We also have responsibilities regarding facilities management supply chain management, utility, energy and waste.
The leaflet describes the general principles in a standard tenant / landlord arrangement and where you as a tenant and we as a landlord are responsible for health, safety, security and fire and the respective actions we need to take. We appreciate not all arrangements are straightforward and you are advised to check your lease agreement and service contract for the specific details of responsibilities and management arrangements.
The leaflet does not relate to individual buildings but reflects statutory obligations and typical landlord and tenant arrangements.
