NHSPS chair to step down

Jane Hamilton, Chair of NHS Property Services is to step down following the end of her three-year term.

Having joined the Board in March 2021, Hamilton has decided that after 15 years working in the UK, now is the right time to return to her native Australia to be with her family. She has overseen the successful transformation of the organisation and with the end of her original three-year term as Chair, she now feels this is the right time to allow someone new to oversee the next exciting chapter for NHSPS.

She said: “When I reflect on the last three years at NHSPS, I am filled with real pride in what we have achieved. We have truly transformed the organisation continuing to embed a culture that puts the customer at the heart of everything we do.

“A year on from that transformation programme, we now have an organisation that is ready and confident of taking the next exciting step in its journey with the brilliant expertise of its people and a newly developed five-year business strategy. I know that I will be leaving behind a strong team in place with an exciting future, which I will continue to watch from afar.”

Martin Steele, Chief Executive Officer for NHS Property Services said: “Jane has guided the business through a period of extraordinary change with a fundamental pivot to a customer centric operating model, a transformational organisational redesign, and the creation of a new business strategy. Her 30 years of experience in property and the government sector have also helped ensure focus on sustaining high levels of operational performance. I know how much she has missed her native Australia and in particular the pull of being with her grandchildren as they grow up. I would like to thank her for the guidance and advice she has provided to me personally and wish her all the very best and every success for the future.”

Hamilton will remain in post until the end of July 2024 while the recruitment for her replacement takes place.

Navigating FM efforts to sustainability 

As environmental protection demands unified action, transparency, and heightened awareness, Biological Preparations has launched an initiative to catalyse sustainability efforts within the FM sector.

FM businesses face unique challenges and heightened expectations of eco-initiatives from their clients. Yet, behind the scenes in FM businesses, many environmental initiatives, rollouts and even planning, are not broadcasted and transparent.

Have your say: Sustainability Trends in FM 

The UK biotech company’s five-minute, anonymous FM-focused survey, offers FM professionals of all hierarchies with a platform to voice their perspectives and share their experiences. The results from this survey will then be analysed and presented as an industry-specific report, which aims to guide FM businesses helping them benchmark trends, gain clarity on industry challenges, and map out goals and metrics towards sustainability.
