Our portfolio is one of the largest in the UK, comprising more than 3,000 properties with 7,000 tenants across England. At a total value of more than £3bn, this represents about 10% of the total NHS estate. 

Our properties range from listed buildings through to award-winning, state-of-the-art integrated health campuses.

• Taking a National lead for specialist technical skills if required to do so.
