About this event

Estates and facilities played a crucial role in the national response to COVID-19 and as the NHS plans the path towards recovery, the profession will be central to this as well.

This CPD accredited event outlined the key priorities for estates and facilities and where directors of finance and their teams will need to work closely with Estates and Facilities teams to deliver these. Areas of focus included:

  • how capital can be financed while considering strategic estates planning at a system level
  • demonstrating value for money and ensuring estates are managed to maximise benefits to patients
  • climate change and the response of the NHS including the expectations around the net zero carbon agenda
  • developments around procurement, including the P23 Framework
  • PFI handovers and general project assurance
