Property Development

CHP has an in-house Developments Team, our centre of excellence for project delivery for new build projects and variations to existing LIFT buildings.  Their expert management and delivery of infrastructure projects enables the transformation of local health and care services, and ultimately improved outcomes for patients and NHS staff.

The team’s vision is to help make change easy. They strive to deliver the transformation of healthcare space through empowered teams, lean processes and agile decision making.   The team acts as an informed client for the cost effective, efficient procurement of new buildings and variations to the existing LIFT estate. The team uses internally generated tools and a broad range of team backgrounds, working in collaboration with CHP’s Strategic Business Development and Property Management teams to deliver projects that primarily reduce voids and increase utilisation.

The team represents the head tenancy function within CHP on behalf of the project sponsors, who are generally NHS commissioners, such as Integrated Care Systems, Integrated Care Boards and NHS England. The team engages sponsors early in the project development process, acting as advisor on process and facilitating the delivery from the initial feasibility works package to handover to the Property team at completion of construction.

The team works closely with the LIFT companies and their supply chain to enable developments on behalf of public sector sponsors.

If you would like to talk to us about our delivery capability please contact our Developments Director, Eugene Prinsloo.

CHP supporting Community Diagnostic Centres

At CHP we work closely with NHSE National Teams and our sister property company, drawing on insight from across the out of hospital estate to help healthcare commissioners and providers maximise the opportunities to provide these vital services for patients outside of the acute setting. We believe utilising existing community-based NHS LIFT estate is a good option for delivering CDCs. This will achieve greater value for money and can be delivered at pace, through a pre-procured delivery supply chain.

CHP Capital Programme

CHP’s developments team delivers capitally funded variations and new build projects.  This funding is in the form of two packages:

  • CHP’s own capital-funded programme; and
  • Where CHP utilises funding from tenants or system capital like the Estates and Technology Transformation Fund or Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships capital programmes.

For CHP a typical capital programme for a year delivers 20-30 variation projects and 10-15 feasibility studies informing the next year’s projects.
