Developing robust estates strategies: Challenges and opportunities

In late 2017 and early 2018, the Nuffield Trust and the Realisation Collaborative brought teams from five local health systems together to consider some of the practical challenges to developing and implementing estates strategies in today’s NHS.

This report follows on from that research, providing an overview of the challenges facing most health and care systems in developing integrated estates strategies. It also gives practical suggestions for national organisations, local systems and third party advisors to address these challenges and enable local systems to deliver a health and care infrastructure that is sustainable and fit for the future.
