Merging of CHP and NHS estates proposals declined

17 March 2018

Responding to a report last year recommending merging of two public sector health estates, the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has rejected the proposal.

Commissioned by health secretary Jeremy Hunt, the Naylor review recommended establishing the NHS Property Board.

This was intended to combine NHS Property Services with the Community Health Partnerships (CHP) to create the new division, according to Pulse Today.

Although the two estates will continue to operate independently, the DHSC has created the NHS Property Board, which will include senior representatives from the two estates and NHS England, NHS Improvement, as well as its own representatives.

The new board will be chaired by health minister Lord O'Shaughnessy.

All existing functions of the two estates, including FM and financing functions, will continue in their existing vein.

Pulse Today has previously reported that NHS Property Estates were owed £91m by GPs last year, with CHP also owed £31m, which is not covered by government funding.
