Community Health Partnerships And NHS Property Services

EDM number 630 in 2017-19, proposed by Bambos Charalambous on 04/12/2017.
Categorised under the topic of Health services.

That this House notes that Community Health Partnerships recently ended its facilities management contract with NHS Property Services and is now undertaking a tender exercise to find a new provider; expresses concern at the considerable uncertainty this has created for the 590 staff working for NHS Property Services who are now likely to transfer out of the NHS to a private provider; notes that this group of staff, who provide vital support services in primary care buildings across England, have been through significant organisational change in recent years, particularly as a result of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, and that this latest move will have a further detrimental impact on workforce morale; further notes that the tendering approach runs contrary to the recommendation in the recent Naylor Report to Government, which called for the establishment of a new central national property organisation that would see NHS Property Services and Community Health Partnerships merged to provide a comprehensive estates and facilities service to the NHS; considers therefore that conducting this tendering exercise prior to such a merger constitutes a misuse of NHS resources at a time when the service is under severe funding pressure; and calls on the Government to intervene to abandon this tendering exercise for a facilities management provider.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
