II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
Torbay and South Devon NHS FT is seeking to select a private sector partner (PSP) to establish a Strategic Estates Partnership (SEP) joint venture with the Trust. Objective of the SEP is to make best use of the Trust's and potentially partners' large and diverse portfolio of property assets, some of which have been identified as surplus to requirements, which may be developed and or disposed of and any surplus reinvested in the partnership. The PSP may wish to explore the opportunities with the Trust's existing limited commercial company SDH Developments Ltd.
SEP key Objectives:
— Provision of commercial skills, expertise and capability to maximise value from the Trust's and other partners' (GPs and voluntary sector) estate.
— Securing finance for investment in infrastructure and new and existing buildings
— Delivery vehicle for the building, development and/or reconfiguration of existing and new facilities including but not limited to, community health and well-being centres, local housing development, care homes, community clinical hubs, new Hospital buildings and reduction in backlog maintenance.
— Property management expertise to include acquisition, marketing, disposal and rationalising leasehold
— Delivering cost effective partnership options to support affordable rental models for new facilities. Specifically to enable the shift from a general practice ownership model to a secure rental model as required.
— Creative use of the Trust's existing assets and services to generate best value for the public purse and a commercial return/income stream for the Trust and partners.
— Creation of a vibrant, appropriate, welcoming environment across all buildings and facilities.
Interested parties are expected to have broad sector experience of strategic estates development and be able to demonstrate examples of innovative and imaginative solutions across a diverse property portfolio including management of specialist supply-chains and arrangement of private financing and delivery of best value to the public purse within a partnership framework.
The scope of the SEP includes the planning and preparation of business cases for the investment and delivery of schemes, initiatives and activities relating to the clinical and non-clinical areas of the estate and related services.
This may include the development, design, financing, build and in exceptional cases where best value is proved the maintenance and operation. In addition the SEP may be asked to develop business cases which enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of Trust support functions.
A number of potential schemes have been identified(not an exhaustive list). These schemes may require additional ‘enabling’ schemes or activities.
Development of community Health and Wellbeing Centres and new general practice accommodation within Torbay and South Devon — Commercial development of land and assets in the community owned by the Trust and possibly GPs but no longer required.
Asset disposal — Solutions to existing challenges and risks i.e. park and ride, backlog maintenance, staff accommodation etc. — New/updated theatre accommodation and plant on the Hospital site — New/updated Emergency Department accommodation on the hospital site — Private patient treatment unit/elective care centre
New/updated inpatient ward facilities — Estate efficiency and utilisation — Commercial development of land and assets on the Hospital site owned by the Trust but no longer required.
Over the term of the SEP, the PSP and Trust with community partners will actively work to develop business cases which contribute to the Partnership's aims and objectives, are within the Partnership's guiding principles and compliant with any procurement regulations existing at the time. The SEP will be required to demonstrate value for money for all schemes and the PSP may be required to market test and/or procure the building, maintenance and operational elements of the schemes where these elements are included within this project scope.
