An on-demand series of briefings, chaired by Adam Thompson, Director, Primary Care Surveyors with contributions from:

This series examines the latest trends and developments covering the all-important issues relevant to decision making by all active partners. COVID-19 is unprecedented and has brought fresh challenges to the way primary care is delivered in the community. This series discusses how the delivery of primary care has been dramatically changed since the pandemic and what the impact of these changes will be to the sector both in the short and longer terms. How does this affect existing healthcare premises and what will new medical centres look like?

With the emergence of integrated care systems and clusters of patient hubs as the way forward, the building specification and function will need to adapt, not least because of the move to online consultations. It will be interesting to see how these changes, together with the pending Premises Directions, will take shape. Covering:

  • Trends, rents and values; review of premises; ownership v. lease
  • What’s the same; what’s changed following COVID-19
  • Where’s the market heading
  • What to do

About the series:

Investment in primary care has been solid; however, with a blow to the system and shock such as COVID-19, what will investment be moving forward?

Primary care premises will have to change post-COVID-19 and adapt very quickly. What will medical centres and the patient experience look and feel like as we move to a new and challenging environment? How will alterations be funded? Many medical centres are not fit for purpose, not fit for the new way of consulting – with the medical professional and patient/customer consultation via digital means. This raises many questions: how must the property be future proofed in a way never seen before? How can social distancing be ensured in some of the older practice centres? How can technology requirements be effectively introduced and quickly deployed? The implications for leases, rent review provisions and rents.

This on-demand series is designed for all medical practice owners and practice managers, investors, funders, primary care estate directors, legal advisors to the primary healthcare sector, planners and agents.
