No more PFI deals, chancellor announces”. However, is PFI too appealing to remove it from the procurement tool box?

Burkhard Musselmann, Managing Principal, Stantec

Since the 80’s public-private partnership (PPP) procurement models emerged as the dominant form of procurement for large National Health Service projects. However, the funding model has come at a cost. It is estimated that PPP hospitals currently cost around £2 billion every year in operational costs.
Much of this onerous legacy is the result of an approach that has prioritised commercial considerations in the design and construction, resulting in poor performance of the building and correspondingly high costs during the operational phase.
Despite of its negative reputation and challenges in the past will PPP really be abolished, or will it come back rebranded and transformed? And if so, how can new PPP schemes be influenced and bettered by design?

NHS Procure22 – Present and Future

Jonathan Ainley, P22 Framework Manager, BAM Construct UK Ltd

P22 is now just over half-way through its four year life and 94 new schemes have been registered on the ProCure22 Club website. It has delivered impressive and measurable results since its introduction in 2016.
The presentation will argue that the framework could offer so much more if the NHS openly embraced the true spirit of P22 and recognise PSCPs and their supply chains as valuable partners who bring expertise not readily available in today’s NHS. This requires the NHS to adopt a different mind-set, moving from seeing the PSCP as principally a builder appointed for a single building or a group of buildings to one where the PSCP is a long-term partner helping the NHS deliver service improvement and organisational change through well-designed, flexible and efficient facilities across multiple sites and providers.

Art and Outside Space at GOSH: Creating Inspiring Environments for Children and Families.

Crispin Walkling-Lea, Head of Healthcare Planning, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

This presentation will highlight significant art commissions at GOSH and will explore the strategies that have been employed to ensure that these projects are as successful as they can be. The requirement to integrate art commissions into the early planning and design processes will be explored and the importance of detailed briefing to ensure transparency will be discussed.
Opportunities for providing outside space on a constrained Central London site are limited. GOSH’s approach to maximising the potential of external opportunities will be presented, together with an overview of recent external projects and those that are planned for the future.
The potential for art and outside spaces to significantly enhance the experience of children and families will be explored.

Building a life saver

Phil Shaw, Divisional Director, Interserve Construction.

The presentation will focus on bringing proton beam therapy to the UK and its construction challenges. Phil will present his journey of leading research into Proton Beam Therapy, which included international travel visiting live projects to meet design experts and end users. Using the knowledge he gained to appoint a UK design team and supply chain with the skills knowledge and experience to design and build the UK’s first NHS High Energy Proton Beam Facility at The Christie, Manchester.
