NHS Scotland Assure survey programme


Thomson Gray’s building surveying team have been appointed by NHS Scotland Assure to carry out further phases of their physical condition survey programme in the role of survey partner.

The commission follows on from the successful completion of Phases 11 – 13 over 94 sites in the last 3 years, including the condition and statutory appraisals of 474 GP practices across Scotland. Phases 14 – 16 will include the survey of hospitals, health centres, and other properties throughout Scotland for NHS Boards, Scottish Ambulance Service, NHS Education for Scotland and National Waiting Times Centre over the next 3 years.

The surveys will incorporate building fabric and M&E engineering services and inform the asset management and capital planning systems used by NHS Boards to determine priorities for repairs and reprovision, as well as providing life cycle information. This latest phase also includes reviews of the complex statutory issues facing the premises, as well as an option to assess space utilisation, functional suitability, and quality issues.
