Prime will be presenting a session on securing affordable investment at the forthcoming Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Estates Forum this November.
The Brighter Together: Estates Forum is a one-day event being held on 13 November in London and is open to HFMA members and their colleagues, and HFMA partner organisations.
The purpose of the conference is to enable finance leaders and senior facilities staff to explore how capital can be financed and to consider strategic estates planning at a system level. The Forum programme will also include guidance on practical issues, such as how to manage the risks of backlog maintenance, demonstrating value for money and maximising benefits to patients.
The Estates Forum is Prime’s first official engagement with the HFMA since becoming the Association’s corporate partner specialising in property. Prime will be leading one of the morning workshops, addressing how to secure private sector capital and how it can complement public sector investment to maximise the value of a healthcare estate. Group Finance Director, Vikki Town and Chief Investment Officer, Phil Holland will be presenting, with Chief Executive Leighton Chumbley in attendance.
Vikki Town said: “We know many people at the Forum will be looking for practical advice on how they can deliver estates transformation and develop the facilities required at an STP level, and we will be giving them some insight into how private investment can be used to meet these needs. We’ll also be addressing where to prioritise the use of private funds and explaining a bit more about the relationship between the NHS, the investor and the developer on estate projects.
“Hopefully members will leave our workshop with an understanding of how to match the most appropriate private funding with their new projects to deliver a masterplan.”
