Management functions:

  • Strategic estates advice

  • Mechanical and engineering services
  • Assuring the quality of premises and compliance with statutory regulations such as fire, Legionella and disability discrimination.

Additional Services

This includes functions which are provided or contracted for/by Primary Care Trusts in some places and because such functions are linked to core business, we will continue to offer them in areas where they are currently provided. However, where such functions are not already provided by Primary Care Trust estates teams, we will only deliver core business. These services include:

Management services:

  • Advice to support GP reimbursements
  • Advice to GPs as providers
  • Operational delivery functions such as;
  • Cleaning (including laundry and linen services)
