Partnership deal set to safeguard future of healthcare properties

We are delighted to have advised on a deal that sees a group of GP practices partner up with a specialist healthcare premises company to ensure its buildings are in top shape for patients and staff.

GP super-partnership Health Care First, which serves more than 30,000 patients, has joined forces with Assura plc to provide specialist management for its surgery premises at Methley, Castleford and Ferrybridge.

Rob Hayes, partner in our commercial property team and head of healthcare acted for Health Care First with David Ogilvie, head of healthcare at Dacres Commercial.

“We were delighted to be able to assist Doctor Biswas and his partners in unlocking value from their properties that will help the practice to expand the services it can provide to patients going forward.”

Assura has bought and leased back the Pinfold Surgery, Elizabeth Court Surgery, Beauforth House and Ferrybridge Medical Centre buildings to the partnership for the long-term. They own 40 GP surgery buildings across Yorkshire and act as property partner to practices in Modality Partnership, Symphony Integrated Care, PML and Lakeside Healthcare Group super-partnerships.

The partnership will now work with the practice teams to ensure their premises are delivering well for patients and supporting activities such as improving energy efficiency of the buildings. The surgeries sit across three primary care networks and are also part of Conexus, the GP Confederation for Wakefield.

We provide legal advice to healthcare professionals, as well as offering commercial property expertise. Find out how we can help your practice grow - call us on 0113 849 4000 or email
