The National Health Service has conducted building surveys to identify the presence of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) in its estate. This identified 16 NHS trusts and 34 buildings containing RAAC planks.
All affected trusts have employed structural surveyors to assess the condition of the infrastructure. A ring-fenced allocation of £110 million has been provided to mitigate the immediate risk and trusts will receive a further £575 million in the current Spending Review period.
