Question for Department of Health

UIN 115831, tabled on 27 November 2017

30 November 2017

NHS Property and Estates: why the estate matters for patients (the Naylor Review) is an independent report prepared for the Department, published on 31 March 2017. The report is available on the Department’s website at:

The Government is giving careful consideration to the Review’s recommendations, including options for the establishment of a new NHS Property Board, and will respond in due course.

The Department does not collect information centrally on the functions undertaken by subsidiaries established by National Health Service trusts or foundation trusts. It is for individual NHS trusts and foundation trusts to determine how best to manage their estates and facilities locally.
