Primary Care Property and Practice

Let Services Dictate Property Form and Function

Property and practice are inextricably linked in the provision of primary healthcare. The property must be fit-for-purpose in size, form and condition and meet the present and future needs of practitioners. This is a future that includes the creation of larger practices, often through mergers, so-called super-practices and the co-location of care services and hospital outreach specialities alongside GP partnerships within those premises. Designs, specifications, development, ownership, funding, investment and occupational arrangements (leases and licences) must all support the delivery of the care services.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Understanding the service need
  • What the new models of healthcare will look like
  • What will the new medical centres look like – the emergence of ‘super practices’ and the impact of alliances
  • Incorporating care and speciality services within the premises
  • The extent to which existing property can meet the requirements of the rapidly evolving service provision
  • The respective contributions of new-build, extension and refurbishment to the solution
  • How will new premises be funded?
  • How best should the property market (developers, investors, funders and occupiers) respond to the challenges?

What others say

I have listened to the Henry Stewart lunchtime Webinars and have found them very informative: in fact there was so much information, I have had to revisit to comprehend it all! A great way to increase your CPD over a lunch break.

I attended the webinar on complex lease terms and expected this to be a light filler to boost my CPD, but I found myself scribbling three pages of useful notes! There was some really valuable new information about current trends and upcoming changes. In particular the post webinar questions gave added insight.
