Example text

One of the key features of facilities that are not owned by the NHS is that they did not have to comply with NHS standard – space or engineering. As long as the local NHS was prepared to pay the rental involved, through reimbursement of the GPs involved, there was also little requirement for approvals beyond the local health economy. The main advantage to GPs of self-ownership was that as independent contractors, and not employed directly by the NHS, that they could sell on the interest in the property when they retired or moved on and keep the proceeds.

This was launched by the DoH in 2001 and was a direct response to several reports into government procurement (not just on the NHS) that sought to develop a more collaborative and partnering approach between the private sector and government in the successful and predictable delivery of major infrastructure programmes and projects. 24 Improving Healthcare through Built Environment Infrastructure ProCure 21 set out to establish a framework agreement at the national level of a number of principal supply chain partners (PSCPs).

The Improvement Plan also focussed on the following aspects: • • • • delivering improvements in the general patient experience and how these could be measured through regular surveys of patient opinions; monitoring of standards through increased inspection of healthcare facilities (both public and private) through the Healthcare Commission, with an increased drive to ensure that hospitals were clean and that hospital-acquired infection rates were decreased; introducing a system of payment for providers known as payment by results (PbR), which would set standard national payment rates for particular procedures.
