NHS and Local Government partners are ambitious to integrate and coordinate care together across the health care system.

Many local areas have a clear vision for how they will transform the delivery of person centred care enabled by technology, data and estate.

However, these function have often been managed as discrete areas rather than as integral to plans for wider change and there are a number of challenges to how they are delivered including funding, ownership, partnerships and ow to ensure affordability.


Integrated Healthcare Properties and Socitm Advisory have come together to offer an approach that optimises joined-up care through integrated estates and technology solutions and overcomes the barriers.

Our approach has the potential to deliver new, affordable and optimised space solutions that are better for local people and staff, smarter, and help you transform the way care is delivered and experienced.


 Healthcare Hub 


 We know the challenges 

The case to transform primary, community and social care through joint technology and estates solutions is very clear, however we know there are real barriers that prevent progress.


Significant capital investment is required to develop new buildings while cloud-based technology transformation increasingly required revenue funding. However, the system for allocating and demonstrating appropriate returns and value for money for both funding streams is not clear.


The property ownership model, payment methods and incentives are misaligned and fragmented in the current system which make it extremely difficult to make major changes to properties and for local partners to work effectively together for common benefit.

Place-based partnerships

The underpinning theory for successful change is that the most effective engagement and the best decision-making happens as close as possible to where services and delivered. On this basis developing a health and care hub requires joint commitment between local NHS providers, commissioners and local authorities to develop mature and collaborative partnerships focused on a common purpose at a place level.


Misaligned and separate technology and estates funding models have often meant missed opportunities to demonstrate the combined economic efficiencies and clinical benefits of transforming buildings and technology together through the implementation of a new care model e.g. smart technologies and diagnostics.

 Your vision 

The achievements we've seen during the Covid-19 pandemic have been incredible. Real service and care transformation that would have previously taken a year or more has been delivered at pace through new collaborations and partnerships.

Health and Care Leaders need to make the good bits stick. There's now a huge opportunity to use imposed transformation to catalyse and develop and deliver a model of integrated, place-based care enabled by joined-up estates and technology across social care, community health services, public health and primary care. Many place-based organisations are collaborating to design local care models that are tailored for local population needs:

Where care...

  • Is organised around the patient's needs
  • Involved and empowers the patient
  • Is integrated between agencies, with a single point of access
  • Is provided locally where possible
  • Meets the best practice quality standards
  • Provides value for money

In which organisation... collaboratively with other agencies and maximise effective use of scarce and specialist resources across systems and in places.

Where artificial barriers...

...that impede the seamless delivery of care are removed, bringing together not only health and social care, but a range of other services that are critical to supporting the population to live healthy lives.

Where patients and the community...

...are empowered to use and access health and care data for different purposes: individual care, proactive care, planning and improvement, and research and development.

Integrated Primary and Community Health Care building hubs...

..will be critical to the successful delivery of the new Care Model. They will offer services ranging from wellbeing advice and signposting to voluntary sector support, through to services that might previously have been offered in acute hospitals e.g. x-rays, physiotherapy, diagnostic tests, community beds and urgent care services. These new smart and technology-enabled buildings have GPs at the care and have broad primary and social care affiliation.
