Helping the NHS transform, enabling excellent patient care
Maximising the efficiency and effectiveness of the NHS estate for the benefit of patients poses both opportunities and challenges to the NHS as a whole.

11:45 Homes for keyworkers - key considerations for NHS Trusts in delivering the Naylor Review's recommendations
The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced in autumn 2017 that eligible NHS staff would be offered a first right of refusal on affordable homes built on surplus land disposed by NHS estate owners, with an ambition to benefit up to 3,000 workers. The commitment was further underlined as part of the Government response to the Naylor review published in January 2018.

We will provide an overview of the policy, provide some top tips in terms of how to work with Local Authorities and discuss the various methods of disposal there are available to NHS Trusts to secure homes for NHS Key Workers.  We will also overlay our discussion with the market interest in delivering this type of accommodation and set out some of the pitfalls and hurdles that you may come across along the way.

Paul Burley, Partner, Montagu Evans

13:15 Making the most of your assets
Whether you are charging or paying them, service charges are key in protecting your revenue stream. The new RICS professional statement "Service charges in commercial property" comes into effect on 1 April 2019. We will discuss the new Code and how this affects you. We will also look at the role service charges play in protecting your organisation's finances, how an asset management system can help and what to do if you think you have been either paying or charging an incorrect amount.

14:50 NHS Property Panel - Future GP Practice
A panel debate chaired by NHS Property Services which will include a short presentation from an architect on what they envision the future GP practice will look like. This will be followed by a discussion on both the ideas behind the design and other key themes which are going to impact on the GP estate. Some of these themes include:

-Many GP practices need urgent upgrading, with four in ten GPs considering their practice not fit for purpose. Why is this and what needs to be done to change it?
-The increasing internet-connectivity of patients and advances in artificial intelligence technology mean it is increasingly easy to speak to your doctor without having to visit a surgery, which may lead to a reduction in space needed for consultations.
- The increasing tendency for GPs to opt for non-medical referral, or social prescribing, typically provided by community or charitable organisations; the role of the GP surgery may therefore evolve in its provision of healthcare for the local community, instead offering its space for activities as diverse as creative arts, cookery and sports.
- The need to take the strain off overwhelmed A&E units, with non-urgent care moving to GP surgeries.
