Your Strategic Estates 

The Strategic Estates Partnership Model

gbpartnerships, via the LIFT framework through North Central London LIFTCo’s, have become the Strategic Estates Partner to the North Central London Integrated Care System (ICS).

The Strategic Estates Partnership model combines the local clinical and operational knowledge of the NHS, together with the ICS/ICB’s in-house estates team, with the expert estate professionals of gbpartnerships. Through this combination, an enhanced cohesive and dynamic estates function has been built.

The gbpartnerships team works seamlessly with ICS counterparts to formulate and realise intelligent
system-wide estates solutions, delivering improved and more efficient health services to local communities.

The model delivers significant benefits and efficiencies to the NHS.

Supporting Your Priorities

The development of Integrated Care Systems over the last two years has looked to enhance the partnerships between
NHS organisations, local councils and others in order to allow organisations to work together and coordinate services more closely, to make real, practical improvements to people’s lives.

Our Strategic Estates Partnership model can enhance these partnerships, and support your system priorities by:

Boosting ‘out-of-hospital’ care and reducing pressure on emergency hospital services through coordination of community infrastructure and service re-design.

Facilitating an increase in digital pathways for primary and outpatient services through investment in digital infrastructure.


Support a focus on population health & local partnerships with borough-funded services, as part of the ICS model through a better understanding of local demographics and services.

Accelerate infrastructure project delivery through an partnership approach that builds on local capacity and capability.

Facilitate integration through development of 
multi-disciplinary hubs and coordinated provision of care centred around residents’ needs.

Support access to funding through an informed investment planning process and alignment to national funding opportunities.
