Capita Symonds to carry out fourth phase of NHS Scotland survey

Capita Symonds has been selected by NHS Scotland’s Health Facilities Scotland as survey partner for the fourth phase of the implementation of an estates asset management system for the NHS estate in Scotland.

The firm was responsible for the completion of the first three phases of the programme which began in 2009 and involved determining the condition of more than 1.9 million sq m of NHS Scotland’s existing land and property assets across the 22 NHS Scotland Health Boards.

In phase four of the project the firm will work with NHS Boards to identify gaps in their asset management system and then carrying out appraisal survey to rectify the shortfalls.

The delivery of healthcare services in Scotland is underpinned by a substantial property estate in excess of 4.6m sq m and valued at more than £4bn.

NHS National Services Scotland spokesman, John Connolly said: “This has been a very successful partnership programme of work with Capita Symonds and 22 disparate health boards.

“They have helped NHS Scotland embed a consistency into their Estate Asset Management and have always displayed an awareness of the client’s requirements and worked well with a multi-client organisation to help the clients achieve a successful outcome.”
