As the originators of the Strategic Estates Partnership (SEP) model, Ryhurst has been at the forefront of delivering estates related savings and efficiencies through these long-term arrangements on behalf of NHS Trusts since 2010.
The SEP model was developed to help the NHS and other healthcare organisations to better utilise its estate, improve the patient experience through provision of quality buildings and provide the best possible value to the taxpayer.
Forming a partnership with Ryhurst helps NHS and Healthcare organisations generate revenue, reduce cost, access capital to invest in new schemes, improve technology, services or infrastructure, and bring new talent, expertise and ideas into the system.
We provide critical constructive challenge to ideas to ensure our partner is getting the most from their investment and resource.
A Strategic Estates Partnership is a long-term arrangement in which both Ryhurst and its public sector partner share skills and expertise to deliver an estate that aligns with the organisation’s aims and improves the healthcare environment for patients, staff and the public.
SEPs can save NHS and healthcare organisations money in the long term by driving down costs, increasing knowledge and improving efficiency. Services can often be delivered at a lower cost and higher quality if designed and delivered with an external partner. This can be because of economies of scale that facilitate cheaper purchasing, the better utilisation of staff, or because good outcome-based arrangements drive appropriate value-based behaviours.
Where organisations collaborate, the product of that partnership can go to market and be sold to third parties, generating income for both partners.
