FINANCE: All but one of the clinical buildings owned by NHS Coventry require work beyond routine maintenance.

The primary care trust has recently reviewed the whole of its estate as part of the Commissioner’s Investment Asset Management Strategy process, according to its legacy document.

The paper, obtained by HSJ under the Freedom of Information Act, says that only one of the PCT’s 26 clinics required no work. Nearly two thirds required some attention, including eight needing major work.

They city’s 63 GP practice premises are described as occupying a “broad spectrum of quality, age range, physical condition, functionality and environmental status”. It states that 86 per cent of them require attention, with just nine needing no work at all.
