Community Solutions for Primary Care reach financial close on Bury Tameside & Glossop NHS LIFT

Community Solutions for Primary Care (CSPC), a joint venture between Morgan Sindall Investments and Barclays European Infrastructure Fund, has achieved financial close on the Bury, Tameside & Glossop NHS LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) project to build and develop a network of community health and social care facilities over the next 20 years. The new purpose-built centres for the Bury, Tameside and Glossop areas, are part of a new wave of ‘super surgeries’ opening up for NHS patients across the country under NHS LIFT public private partnerships.

Together with Bury Primary Care Trust, Tameside & Glossop Primary Care Trust and Partnerships for Health, CSPC has formed a public private partnership company called Bury, Tameside & Glossop Community Solutions Limited (BTGCS). BTGCS has signed a 20-year strategic partnering agreement to build and maintain a network of new health and social care premises in the Bury, Tameside & Glossop areas.

CSPC will lead the design and build the first wave of two facilities in Ashton and Radcliffe with construction due to start immediately under a framework agreement for future centres, which is expected to be worth approximately £65 million over an initial five-year period.

CSPC currently has similar long-term partnering agreements with four NHS LIFT projects in Barnsley, Doncaster, South East Hampshire and Camden and Islington.
