Over the past decade, Community Health Partnerships (CHP) has led a concentrated investment in new local Community and Primary health care facilities, resulting in a catalyst for change in the way services are delivered and improving the health and wellbeing of local communities.
CHP holds investment assets in each of the 49 LIFT Companies across England. Under the guardianship of CHP, the LIFT PPP programme delivers health infrastructure facilities, with total investment to date exceeding £2.5 billion and 339 health and social care buildings across England.
CHP acts as the Public Sector investment partner and invests equity and loan capital alongside infrastructure developers and investment funds, ensuring an active market and stable financial structures.
There are now 23 major investors in the LIFT programme, which, as the market matures, is seeing a shift from developers to longer-term, secondary institutional investors. More healthcare schemes are being developed as PPP LIFT Companies continue to work for their local NHS customers.
A further £50m of investment is expected over the next two years.
