Completion of 6 Facet Survey of NHS Trust Estate
Haldons has recently completed a 6 facet survey of a large Trust's whole estate in order to provide the Trust with the likely costs to maintain its estate to an acceptable standard, and where opportunities exist for adaptation and rationalisation.
The next stage will be the incorporation of the assessments into an Estate Strategy and to draw up annual capital investment and estate management programmes.
The NHS PAM is a tool that allows NHS organisations to better understand the efficiency, effectiveness and level of safety with which they manage their estate and how that links to patient experience.
The NHS PAM has two distinct but complementary parts:
• Self-assessment questions: supporting quality and safety compliance;
• Metrics: supporting efficiency of the estate and facilities.
