CHP sign joint Memorandum of Understanding with NHS Property Services

Community Health Partnerships (CHP) and its sister company NHS Property Services have signed a joint Memorandum of Understanding that sets out the companies’ shared objective of providing local health and care systems with the estate and premises services they need to meet current requirements and help deliver better-quality, better-used and better-value estates and services for the future.

Delivering a seamless service model

By working closely together, the two companies will deliver a seamless service model, facilitating strategic estate partnerships and providing services to the NHS and wider health economy as the integrated provider of choice. 

This will include aligning operating models and business processes where appropriate in order to maximise cost efficiencies, as well as to provide greater clarity and avoid duplication for tenants, partners and other stakeholders.

Partnership working

The two companies will work in partnerships to ensure that customers benefit through driving efficiencies in the way that they operate, making best use of their shared skills and expertise and ensuring that they deliver a joined-up service where this is appropriate.

The five key areas for partnership working between CHP and NHS Property Services are:

  • Strategic Estate Planning
  • Scheme Developments
  • Communications
  • Finance
  • Facilities Management
