Estates Best Value Group

Estates Best Value Group Mission Statement

The Estates Best Value Group comprises of like minded Senior Operational Estates and Facilities professionals from Acute, Community and Mental Health Trusts including members from NHS Property Services Ltd. The members bring a wealth of knowledge and experience together to discuss and solve current issues to the benefit of all. 

The Estates Best Value Group has been running since 1997 and over the years has dealt with a wide range of issues specific to the organisation and delivery of an effective buildings’ maintenance service. This group comprises of NHS Estates professionals, meeting four times a year. The Estates South members comprise of representatives from Acute Trusts, Mental Health Trusts, Community Trusts and NHS Property Services Ltd. Each meeting agenda is driven by the members, where there is opportunity to discuss individual operational concerns and issues and to seek advice and guidance on how others are operating the services they provide. Members recognise the importance of comparing data and they feel it is equally important to share innovation and best practice with the aim of taking a much more proactive approach to improving the services they provide.

    Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS FT have held membership of  NPAG I believe pretty much since the beginning. It is a group where Estates professionals share information and gain an understanding of how Estates and Facilities are operating around the country. By attending such a group and sharing experiences in a friendly and relaxed environment you gain valuable information which gives you confidence that you don’t stand alone with the day to day issues we all face in the Estates environment today. It doesn’t stop when the meetings end there is a web portal and members often make contact between meetings to share and discuss any issues they may require support with.

    Being part of the NPAG membership has allowed me insight, knowledge and perspective of NHS Estates related subjects by learning, debating and discussing with likeminded practicing professionals from within the industry, this I have found most valuable for my own development for over ten years.
