Facilities (North) Best Value Group
The NPAG Facilities North and South BVGs are unique groups enabling NHS Facilities Managers to meet and share new ideas, service innovation, discuss topical issues, measure trust performance, provide cost effective solutions, learn from others creative service redesign and network with likeminded individuals involved in Facilities Management.
The groups have been running for a number of years and have a broad membership from Acute, Community and Mental Health Trusts with members who have a wealth of experience in managing facilities. The NHS are going through a period of unprecedented change with NHS Managers more than ever having to demonstrate continuous service improvement with limited resource and challenging cost improvement programmes.
Beginning life as the ‘Hotel Services Benchmarking Club’ in 1998, our meetings have been hosted by over 50 hospitals. NPAG has worked with Facilities Services Managers, creating an environment for them to continually improve their services. Consequently members of our groups continue to demonstrate enthusiasm for seeking out improvements and developments in their services, providing a solid basis upon which to provide the best available care for patients.

“Our Trust’s membership of the Facilities North Best Value Group is extremely valuable as a means of networking with the wider NHS. It provides a very positive and vibrant forum in which Estates & Facilities professionals can share good practice and lessons learned so these can be taken back to our respective NHS Trusts and the benefits realised. The positive dynamics of the group are evident in the good attendance at each meeting and the Facilitator is a significant contributor to creating this vibrant environment.”Facilities North BVG 2016-17 Member
