‘Premises’ are the single largest long term commitment and source of financial risk for most primary health care practices. General practice partners and their practice managers are not able to magic this risk away. It exists and is a fundamental part of the structure within which they operate. Nevertheless good business practice requires that risks are managed and mitigated wherever possible.
Patricia Connelly, CEO, Henry Stewart Conference Studies comments: “On the one hand Primary Care Property is an increasingly important sector for investment and on the other a vital element in the provision of healthcare to the public. There is a great deal happening that can affect demand, values, security of income and the costs of occupation. All these issues will be covered at this briefing.”
With 14 speakers and panellists covering lease terms, investment, finance, development, design, regulation and government policy, as well as tax and the building-pension-partnership interplay, the day is organised to address all the relevant issues. Full details of the conference, which will be held at Le Meridien Piccadilly, London, on Tuesday 26 January 2016, can be found at www.henrystewartconferences.com/primaryhealthcareproperty2016/
“It is because primary healthcare property is so important for the practices that occupy them, the mortgage providers that lend on them and the investors who, in increasing numbers, own them that the annual conference on ‘Primary Healthcare Property’ has become so well attended” says Patricia Connelly. “At the 2016 conference on the Latest Developments in Primary Healthcare Property we will be addressing all the latest developments and important issues, including: values, rents, available finance, lease terms, trends and government intentions. As always there will be keynote presentations, talks, panel sessions and case studies. All arranged to ensure that the full spectrum of opportunities and risks are covered during this period of very rapid change.”
“It will be information-packed with useful guidance. This is an important subject and an important time for occupying practitioners, owners of the properties and those providing the funds. We are bringing together investors, occupiers, funders and NHS decision makers to review the issues and evaluate alternative solutions,” she concludes.
