Estates (North) Best Value Group

The Estates North Best Value Group consists of like minded NHS professionals who meet four times a year to openly share knowledge, information and identify areas of best practice with the aim of taking a much more  proactive approach to improving the services they provide. The group comprises of representatives from Acute Trusts, Mental Health Trusts and Community Trusts.

With the changes to the SAQ’s in the Premises Assurance Model (PAM) and the impact on support services as a result of the Lord Carter Report, there is a real need for professionals to come together in the spirit of partnership working. Membership to this group offers a fantastic opportunity to work much more collaboratively with colleagues from across the NHS as well as looking at how the private sector deliver similar services with the aim of sharing information and adopting best practice. Why not join us and see how membership can benefit you and your Trust?

“My aim has been to promote the sharing of good practice and creating an open and sharing network of “like minded” individuals to create a synergy among members. All members are aware of the need to continuously meet challenging cost improvement programmes whilst maintaining and improving quality of services with rising patient and commissioner expectations. This can only be achieved by working together to solve issues and adopting best practice, learning the lessons and sharing information openly and honestly.

I would encourage and welcome new members to this year’s round of meetings where you will find members who are willing to learn and share their experiences for the benefit of all. You can expect to receive a warm welcome. The support, knowledge, networking and advice you will receive will be invaluable in preparing you for the challenges ahead.”
