Ryhurst has over 20 years’ experience working solely within the NHS and healthcare estates and property sector.
Part of the current challenge for the NHS is to ensure that the “right” estate is in place for the delivery of a modern healthcare provision aligned with the changing priorities and service models envisaged by the NHS Five Year Forward View.

There are several different strands of development needed if efficiencies are to be realised. The Lord Carter of Coles’ interim report, Review of Operational Productivity in NHS providers, advises that there is a 14.5% potential estates saving achievable through:

  • More efficient management of the required estate and facilities services at any time
  • Divestment of estate no longer required
  • Acquisition of and investment in new estate of various types and serving various different parts of the modernised healthcare system
  • Management of change of use of existing estate (transition)

This will allow trusts to be able to look at the wider picture, considering not only clinical needs but also to maximise the potential for joint working with other trusts, councils, third sector or independent providers.  

Ryhurst is renowned for its landmark ‘whole’ estate Strategic Estates Partnerships (SEPs) and has an unparalleled position as the leading estates partner working in the SEP arena.

But are you aware that Ryhurst also has a significant track record as an estates advisor?

As an estates advisor, Ryhurst can provide a critical analysis of the options available to deliver quality and financial improvements, supporting the creation, management and achievement of clear and robust efficiency targets.

Performance measurement and benchmarking are important steps in the process of achieving efficiency targets. Ryhurst is able to provide professional, estates advisory support to:

  • Establish estates and facilities performance measurements and analytics
  • Track utilisation of buildings to maximise efficiency
  • Advise on integrated opportunities to increase income or maximise site values
  • Identify potential joint working opportunities to deliver an efficient local health economy
