To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what accountability procedures have been established in relation to staff providing (a) leadership and (b) strategic direction to the NHS as a result of the establishment of the NHS Property Board.
6 December 2018
No staff were employed as a direct result of the establishment of the NHS Property Board.
Chaired by the Parliamentary under Secretary of State (Lord O’Shaughnessy), the NHS Property Board brings together senior representatives from the Department, NHS England, NHS Improvement, wider Government, Community Health Partnerships and NHS Property Services to provide leadership and strategic direction for the system on estates matters. Member organisations are accountable to the NHS Property Board for delivering in line with its agreed objectives, though this does not affect the existing statutory duties and accountabilities of the individual member organisations and their staff.
