The Strategic Estates Partnership will be a 50:50 joint venture between the Trust and Health Innovation Partners for a 10-15 year period.

We are proud of the positive way our estate contributes to patient and staff experiences and organisational efficiencies. This partnership will support us to take the next steps.”
Speaking on behalf of Health Innovation Partners, Helen Davis, Head of Health at Arcadis, said: “The Strategic Estates Partnership initiative is an ideal vehicle for the NHS to develop a long term approach towards delivering facilities that enable excellent healthcare outcomes. Health Innovation Partners will be working closely with Oxleas to consider deliverable solutions to its short and longer term priorities, and identify sustainable benefits that enhance the patient and staff environment”
Lisa Scenna, Managing Director at Community Solutions comments: “This is an important success for Health Innovation Partners as it marks a significant step for us in forming further Strategic Partnerships with NHS Trusts. We look forward to working with Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to establish this long term partnership.”
