At GPI we have been offering a property service and infrastructure solutions to NHS clients for over 20 years. We have worked with over 1,000 GPs, over 200 practices and various NHS commissioners, PCTs, Health Boards and CCGs, providing solutions from Scotland to Cornwall; our property management team have looked after a portfolio of health centres with a combined value in excess of £350m.
We started with FHSAs and GPs and after many changes are now working with NHS England, other NHS health bodies and health service providers. The interesting fact is that through all of these changes the core requirement from us has not changed; experience and understanding of property and building-related issues combined with the financial ability to translate health providers’ requirements into a building that benefits their patients, staff and businesses. Our job will always involve the same key essentials; an old fashioned commitment to building long term relationships as well as new premises.
At the same time, we recognise the rapidly changing landscape and see the potential offered through focussing upon Sustainability and Transformation, whilst working with the emerging Accountable Care Organisations in their various forms. Our knowledge and understanding of the changes means we can continue to ensure our clients gain the full benefit from the opportunities they present. As a result, our service offering has changed accordingly and with our strategic partners, Octopus Healthcare and the MedicX Fund, we are pleased to offer a broad range of investment and development solutions to primary, secondary and social care providers. This includes traditional third party development as well as more innovative partnership models, plus sale and leaseback, flexible lease terms and capital investment for large-scale, integrated premises development.
We are therefore pleased to present our new website and I hope it reflects our commitment to the ever evolving NHS, whilst outlining our experience and wide range of flexible services.
