NHSPS grows Open Space scheme across England

NHS Open Space, a service launched by NHS Property Services (NHSPS) in 2019, has announced the latest expansion of bookable space for health, wellbeing and community services.

The pay-as-you-go service provides access to clinical and non-clinical rooms across the NHS. Health, wellbeing and community services can book flexible and affordable rooms across England on an hourly, sessional or daily basis.

The expansion aims to offer more choice for health and wellbeing providers, enabling them to book the space they need, when and where they need it.

Christopher King, Head of Open Space at NHSPS, said: “Our priority is delivering a fully managed service for our users that provides flexible and affordable spaces.

“Since launch, we have seen over three million hours of care offered to patients across England. This shows just how vital it is for communities to have access to a wide range of services locally.”

Registered users can now choose from 1,200 bookable spaces across more than 200 properties in England.

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey 

Planned, proactive maintenance is a keystone of every FM strategy. However, with current cost constraints, there are many demands on Facilities Managers’ maintenance budgets. When it comes to drainage and plumbing, however, the expense of repairing blockages or dealing with flooding could vastly exceed the cost of preventative maintenance.

Given your role as an FM Professional, we would love to hear your views, challenges & experiences, and opinions on drainage & plumbing within the workplace. 

The survey will take just five minutes to complete and offers the chance to win an Amazon Gift Card Worth £100.
