Simon Knott, who joined NHS Property Services (NHSPS) in 2018, as the Principles Operations Compliance Manager in the technical compliance team has recently been appointed as the Head of Hard FM Expertise.
Knott’s new role will involve leading the hard facilities management expertise team. This will include providing advice and expertise on technical standards, governance, infrastructure asset management, fire safety, reporting, and statutory inspections, in addition to supporting the organisation’s regional delivery function.
The compliance expert held similar roles at Carillion and BT Facilities Services prior to joining NHSPS. In his new position, however, he will play an active role in supporting the health and property organisation’s hard FM strategy.
Knott said: “Hard facilities management services are one of NHSPS’ staple offerings, so I want to ensure that we support our customers through correct standards of property maintenance and in-house expertise. I’m excited to lead this customer focused team as we drive our philosophy of supporting the NHS in delivering excellent patient care.”
Lucy Fitzhugh, Head of Delivery Strategy and Assurance for NHSPS, added: “Simon has been an integral leader in the Technical Compliance Team, and I’m delighted that he will now be part of NHSPS’ senior leadership team.
“At NHSPS we follow a get, keep, grow talent culture, and Simon has embodied our values and fully supported our customers. I’m excited to see him thrive in his new position.”
