Capsticks advises Haringey PCT on new community hospital deal

September 2007. Press Releases by Capsticks (view listing).

Leading health sector specialists Capsticks acted as legal advisers to Haringey Teaching PCT on its newly-signed ÂŁ12m Hornsey Central Community Hospital deal.

The NHS LIFT arrangement will see private sector partner Elevate Partnerships Ltd (advised by Shadbolts LLP) rebuild existing facilities and provide facilities management services.

Expected to open in 2009, the 3-storey community hospital will comprise 2 floors of clinical space and a third floor split evenly between “flexible clinical space” and staff accommodation for an integrated health and social care team for adults and older people.

As well as being at the forefront of the new generation of community facilities (termed “polyclinics” in Lord Darzi’s recent review) throughout London, the deal is also a pathfinder for the new “Land Retained Agreement”, modelled on the Department of Health's PFI standard contract.

The project is Capsticks’ 20th closed LIFT deal, following closely from the recent signing of the £8m first tranche of the fourth wave South East Essex NHS LIFT deal, expected to deliver in the region of £100m of new facilities over its 25 year lifespan.
