Bevan Brittan are clear market leaders in the Strategic Estates Partnership (SEP) programme, having closed procurements for SEPs at Yeovil, Isle of Wight, Burton, Royal Cornwall and Hinchingbrooke and being currently instructed on a further five such projects. The firm also acts for nine of the Vanguard status New Models of Care projects, and is pre-eminent in advising on infrastructure transactions such as the £140m New Papworth PFI and the Sandwell PF2 project (the only PF2 to close in the health sector).
Other notable transactional work includes helping Yeovil District Hospital (YDH) NHS Foundation Trust establish Symphony Healthcare Services Limited, a ground-breaking integrated model of care to enable local GP practices to integrate into a new organisation supported by the infrastructure of YDH and have access to such services as finance, IT, estates, and HR.

We have a long tradition of supporting and working closely with the NHS and its partners, and the sector forms a hugely important part of our practice.
