HEALTHCARE ESTATES SHOW PREVIEW


47


A whole industry under the microscope


Three conference streams – and a fresh look at modular construction – will provide NHS estates and facilities professionals with vital insight into current topics at Healthcare Estates 2017 in October


W


ith healthcare at the forefront of the Government’s cost-saving ambitions, Lord Carter’s five-


year plan and the targeted £5bn per year of efficiency savings by 2020/21 remain key topics for healthcare estates professionals. Returning to Manchester on 10-11 October, Healthcare Estates 2017 will focus on three conference streams intended to inform, inspire, and challenge delegates – ‘Strategy and Leadership’, ‘Planning, Design and Construction’, and ‘Engineering and Estates Management’.


The conference opens with keynote speaker Simon Corben, director and head of profession for estates and facilitates at NHS Improvement, who will reflect on his first six months in office and discuss the need for stronger and more robust corpo- rate governance assurance. This will also be a subject in the panel discussion that will follow.


Show director Steve Webb commented: “Following recent events in the UK – terrorist attacks, the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower, and the NHS cyber attack – NHS estates and facilities directors are understandably concerned about their requirement to ensure corporate governance and assurance to their board. “Healthcare Estates has gathered key figures from the NHS, including Simon Corben, past president of IHEEM; Paul Kingsmore, director of services at Manchester Metropolitan University, and Kevin Oxley, director of estates, facilities and capital planning at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. [They will] discuss and consider the highly topical subject of corporate governance assurance and give their individual standpoints.”


ADF SEPTEMBER 2017 Strategy and Leadership


The ‘Strategy and Leadership’ conference stream will cover a diverse range of topics critical to achieving Lord Carter’s plans for greater productivity and efficiency. These include efficiency in workforce development, as demonstrated by a new staffing model under development at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust that addresses the need for sustainable staffing costs, focuses on the quality of patient care and improved clini- cal outcomes, and examines the increased clinical demand and the changes in the physical environment for staff. The model has been developed as extensive new facilities take shape during the hospital’s £485m redevelopment.


Engineering and Facilities Management


The ‘Engineering and Facilities Management’ stream will look at some of the practical aspects of healthcare estate management – from energy procurement and the engineering aspects of ventilation control in operating theatres, to infection control measures. Among the presentations will be one by Mott MacDonald making the case for the use in healthcare of the WELL certification system for buildings – which looks at their quantifiable impact of buildings on occupants’ health. Maintenance and electrical infrastructure topics will also be addressed, from stand- points including safety, compliance, and value for money.
