LCMB has been shortlisted for the Constructing Excellence in London & South East Awards 2016 Whole Life Value award for their work with University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH), to create a facilities management strategy to improve their patient experience. This award celebrates projects which improves the value delivered from the built environment for organisations and the wider community.
The NHS faces a predicted funding gap of £30bn by 2020 and an increased focus on quality and safety flowing from the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust public enquiry, and the Government’s response laid out within ‘Hard Truths: The Journey to Putting Patients First’. NHS estates and facilities need to respond to these challenges, as they represent a key component of a quality and safe health service and account for approximately £7bn a year in revenue costs and £3bn of capital investment.
In 2014, UCLH engaged LCMB to create a Facilities Management Strategy that would examine, how the estate and annual controllable FM spend at UCLH could deliver better value.
The FM strategy was developed in consultation with a wide cross section of UCLH patients, staff and stakeholders.
“LCMB have been able to help us reduce cost, improve our sustainability performance and identify how we can better align our Facilities Management spend and resources with the UCLH clinical strategy and top 10 objectives. The LCMB team have the skills and experience to make a big difference for any NHS organisation that relies on buildings to function”.
Kieran McDaid, Director of Estates, UCLH.
This FM strategy outlines how UCLH propose to make this investment work harder for their patients, staff and stakeholders and align their FM resources more effectively with the delivery of UCLH’s clinical strategy and top 10 objectives. The strategy has been used over the last two years to realise more value from their buildings and FM services.
