Healthcare - construction and engineering
With the NHS experiencing the most significant reforms in a generation Weightmans’ Construction and Engineering team has the experience and capability to assist you in making and implementing the right decisions for your capital estate.
Following the reforms implemented by the Health and Social Care Act 2012, Foundation Trusts and other bodies are faced with a number of challenges including making savings and providing efficiencies whilst at the same time safeguarding patient care.
The greater focus on primary healthcare, new operating structures in place and changed commissioning arrangements will all impact on the provision of your capital estate. Whether you are looking to construct new facilities, to upgrade, refurbish or extend existing facilities or to enter into facilities management contracts, important decisions have to be taken in relation to how these contracts will be funded, procured and managed to minimise your risk and ensure your facilities are completed on time and within budget.
Weightmans can assist you in this process and help you implement those changes. We have advised NHS organisations and contractors and understand issues from both the Employer and the Contractor’s point of view.
