'The Opportunities to Transform Through the PFI Handback Process'

The PFI Handback process represents an opportunity to transform clinical service delivery through to operational FM service delivery. The process will result in Health Boards and Trusts becoming data rich and the way in which that data is received, stored, managed and maintained will help realise continuous improvement objectives. From supporting procurement activities through to delivering decarbonisation of the estate from funding sources, the data asset that will transfer with the physical building is valuable to future performance.

'Parkhead Hub: Evolution of a Reference design to meet future demands'

The Parkhead Hub, an evolution of Hoskins Architects’ 2016 Reference Health design marks a significant increase in scale, environmental performance and a more integrated approach to health and social care.  It builds upon the core principles of; clear welcoming entrance; intuitive wayfinding; flexibility and space efficiency through standardisation; and space for partners.  Designed for fossil fuel-free operation, it anticipates future healthcare demands, ensuring adaptability and efficiency. The presentation details the inherent flexibility and environmental considerations embedded in the initial design, emphasizing constant testing throughout development to achieve a forward-thinking healthcare facility.

'Decarbonisation Retrofit at Scale'

We will demonstrate the success of NHS Tayside, Lothian, Forth Valley, Borders and Lanarkshire in delivering decarbonisation projects at scale, with support from Scottish Government’ Green Public Sector Estates Decarbonisation Scheme (GPSEDS) and Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency Framework (NDEEF). We will provide an overview of our support to initial Pre-Capital assessments (identifying and prioritising interventions), successful Capital Grant applications and how the NDEEF has supported deliver multi building, multi-intervention projects; providing exemplar approaches to large scale decarbonisation retrofit. It will further highlight lessons learned, and the need for collaboration and additional financing to deliver on challenging decarbonisation targets.

'Whole System Healthcare Estate Planning'

The pressures on healthcare in the UK and the inadequacy of its buildings to meet demand now and into the future are all too apparent. Investment needs to be made on a vast scale, as evidenced by many outdated healthcare facilities across the UK. To establish a more sustainable footing in healthcare infrastructure, it’s imperative to adopt fresh, innovative approaches that address both current needs and future challenges across a whole system. Turner & Townsend is supporting NHS clients to develop whole system infrastructure investment plans. Based on this experience, we will set out 5 success factors to developing a whole system plan.
