Delivering Innovation in Healthcare Premises

Time: 11:55 - 12:15

The new Dulwich Health Centre is designed to provide scope for a true transformation in the delivery of healthcare, with clinicians from all sectors working together and with a legal occupation structure intended to enable boundaries to be porous in response to changing requirements. Care will be provided in the first instance by three Foundation Trusts and an APMS, supported by a pharmacy and the voluntary sector, so it is important that demises can support collaborative practices in the hope that this can be a truly ‘one-stop-shop’.

Dulwich is an NHS Property Services-owned site, part pre-sold to the Education Funding Agency for local council provision of a school and with several site risks to be managed. A large number of stakeholders involved in providing integrated local delivery of primary, community and outpatient care concentrating on long-term conditions. Issues to be resolved involved demises, cost certainty, timing, inter-agency agreements.

The Dulwich Health Centre’s procurement route is through a new wave of NHS LIFT schemes being delivered by Community Health Partnerships (CHP) within an NHS assurance regime from 2009. However, following the dissolution of PCTs LIFT knowledge and expertise was truly lost from the system. Now, for the first time in the history of LIFT, CHP can act as the central resource for new development knowledge in the Public-Private Partnerships arena, enabling us to standardise and streamline delivery of new facilities to the advantage of the wider health economy. Currie & Brown has been instrumental in the process with their knowledge of the healthcare and delivery processes.

Presenting will be the key team members responsible for getting the project to site, funds allocated in a time of financial restraint and provider organisations ready to work out how to deliver collaborative services.
