CHP Business Plan Published; Estate solutions to deliver the Five Year Forward View

CHP has published its Business Plan for 2015/2016.

CHP Chief Executive, Dr Sue O'Connell

The plan details how we are working with commissioners, trusts and local government to unlock value from England’s health and social care estate to drive NHS system savings, whilst also working to support the implementation of the Five Year Forward View.

CHPs Business Plan 2015/2016 sets out five priorities, which are summarised below:

Strategic Estate Planning

CHP is working with NHS Property Services to provide a strategic estate planning service.

The NHS estate needs to be well-planned, well-utilised and efficiently run in order to offer good value for money and to be able to deliver the changing models of care to respond to the challenges set out by the Five Year Forward View.

Property Management

CHP will continue to provide best quality, well-used, and cost effective primary and community healthcare estate.  We are responsible for 304 integrated health and well-being centres.  

During the coming year, our focus will be to ensure that our estate is used to its full potential both in terms of the delivery of services for patients and cost effectiveness to reduce overall estate costs.

Public Private Partnerships (PPP)

CHP will ensure that the public sector shareholding in the LIFT PPP is effectively managed and continues to expand investment in primary healthcare and community estate across England.  We are working with local partners and the 49 LIFT Joint Venture companies to deliver innovative, cost effective new investment in key healthcare infrastructure, helping to achieve the aims of the Five Year Forward View.

Drive System Savings

We are working to help drive significant system savings for the NHS that can be reinvested in patient care and community wellbeing.  The savings will be delivered through a mix of large system reconfiguration projects and smaller, localised activities.

High performing organisation

We aim to be a high performing, customer and service delivery-focused organisation that exceeds our customers’ expectations.
