St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – estate strategy

We have been appointed by St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to develop a new estate strategy to guide the management of and investment in their estate.

The estate strategy will support future funding bids including those related to the Department of Health and Social Care health infrastructure plan (HIP).

Supporting the Trust to improve the quality of care provided for 3.5 million people across south London and beyond, the estate strategy will ensure the best use is made of existing buildings.

It will help enhance the working environment of its 9,000 staff and it will also consider the potential requirement for additional space across its two hospital sites in Tooting (St George’s) and Roehampton (Queen Mary’s).

The estate strategy will address key issues including infrastructure requirements, shortfalls in the required level of service/quality standards and bed capacity. Enabling delivery of the Trust’s clinical strategy published last year, it will also ensure sufficient flexibility to meet future demand requirements.

Darren Laybourn, Director and Global Head of Healthcare comments on the appointment:

St George’s Hospital is one of the country’s largest acute NHS Trusts, providing vital services to a significant population across south London and beyond.

"In developing a comprehensive estate strategy, it will maximise return on any investment needed, and ensure that patients receive the best possible care well into the future.”
