I have considerable experience in NHS Estates, complex property based public private partnerships, with a particular emphasis in Health PPP schemes such as NHS LIFT and Strategic Estate Partnerships and Local Authority LABVs.
I also specialise in complex site disposals and rationalisation of large Acute and Mental Health sites. I am particularly interested in the future direction of the NHS Estate and the evolving question of ownership of the PCT estate widely speaking and publishing articles on this subject.
I have been involved in 22 NHS Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) schemes and now focus on bespoke primary care schemes acting for both PCTs and Private Sector developers. I have acted on the first ever merger of two LIFTCos in the country.
I was involved in drafting the standard proforma documents in education (BSF), health (NHS LIFT) and office space (WISP - Welsh Investment Strategic Partnerships.)
I lead the strong relationship we have with Aviva's Commercial Finance Team carrying out a cross selection of their PPP lending work including LIFT, bespoke Primary Care schemes, BSF and PFI.
I also head up the Registered Provider bulk transfer and financing team, acting for registered providers in bulk housing association stock transfers for both the seller and buyer and also for refinancing or new financing or housing stock.
