Board announcement

The board of directors has today given the Trust the go ahead to develop a full and detailed business case for transferring the Trust’s estates and facilities management services into a wholly owned subsidiary

Colin Martin, chief executive of Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust said: “The board of directors has today given the Trust the go ahead to develop a full and detailed business case for transferring the Trust’s estates and facilities management services into a wholly owned subsidiary.

“A final decision on whether this will go ahead will not be made until the board considers this business case at its meeting at the end of September.

“The subsidiary, TEWV Estates and Facilities Management Ltd, was set up in late 2017 to step in, if required, to provide estates and facilities management services at Roseberry Park and this took place on 18 June 2018. 

“The Trust also recognised the potential for the company to expand into other areas of estates and facilities management. These are important services and the board asked for further work to be undertaken to explore options.

“We think there is potential to improve our estates and facilities management services by standardising arrangements across the Trust.

“Over the last few years the Trust has expanded into new geographic areas and these services are now managed and provided in a variety of ways.

“There is an opportunity to make sure our services are consistent across the Trust.

“We understand that some staff may be concerned about potential changes and it’s important that we listen to those concerns.

“Over the coming months we will work with staff and their representatives to develop the business case.

“The board are very clear that the subsidiary company should uphold the Trust’s values and this will also be scrutinised by the board when it considers the business case in September.”
