NHSBT are in a period of change, with a relatively new Exec team (ET), exciting new growth products around Plasma & a desire to modernise & improve their estates offering against a backdrop of challenging public funding.

We have not had a detailed estates strategy for some time & have historically struggled to get long term, holistic views from the organisational departments.

The estate has been underfunded for many years, with significant back log maintenance continually being pushed into the long grass & infrastructure failures becoming more frequent & more costly. The Estates team have also had a mainly stagnate structure for a decade, despite various increase in workload.

Underpinning all of this is the businesses critical deliverables (blood products etc) taking focus, energy & efforts & thus spend, resource & capacity to deliver & improve, meaning long term estates planning, discussions around consolidation & holistic location & site reviews have been nothing more than talking points.

The new ET, new growth areas, hybrid working, & a desire to improve staff wellbeing lead us to this organisational first – bringing in a 3rd party consultant to undertake a full & detailed review, strategy & planning exercise to deliver a robust 10+ year strategy for NHSBT.
