COVID-19 NHS Estates and Procurement Help

← Back to news & insight

We know first-hand how extremely busy the various NHS Estates departments will be at the moment.

Therefore, we have joined with other consultants to create the Estates and Procurement Help, COVID-19 document.

This document lists a group of like-minded consultants and contractors who specialise in healthcare, and who have put aside their usual roles as competitors to come together to provide a team that can assist Trusts quickly and efficiently. We all have resources to work in a very agile, safe manner, and cover a large geographical area.

This document is downloadable here.

Our teams are working on a number of priority COVID-19 related schemes.

We can offer the following to the NHS in this time of need:

  • Immediate mobilisation of resources to urgent COVID-19 projects around the country.
  • Strong professional links to our partners as detailed in the attached procurement documentation. We are proud to work with many of these businesses on a regular basis and have developed effective working methods.
  • Successfully managing and problem-solving complex phasing projects often within acute and emergency wards.
  • Ensuring the utmost health and safety of staff, patients and visitors, particularly in regards to infection control measures.
  • A renowned flexiblility of approach and strength of communication. Each member of our team commits themselves wholly to each project and is supported by a hands-on director at all times.

Our healthcare specialists can also draw from the expertise of our wider leisure and residential teams to find solutions to current issues.

These include:

  • Converting non-healthcare environments into emergency care spaces.
  • Exploring options for the provision of accommodation for key workers.
  • Utilising BIM expertise to discover the most efficient and effective use of a converted healthcare space.
  • Liaising effectively with wider public sector stakeholders to find mutual solutions to community-wide emergencies.

We are here to help. Please get in touch:
