  • Leasehold acquisition of offices on behalf of NHS Trusts and Health Boards;
  • Lease re-gears, including varying principal lease terms and break dates, as well as general management work (licences to alter etc) in support of tenant works;
  • Freehold sales of surplus commercial and residential properties, including provisions to protect future development rights of adjacent land retained by NHS Wales;
  • Freehold acquisitions in connection with large-scale developments by NHS Trusts and Health Boards; and
  • General, one-off property queries on sundry matters, including in the primary care field.
“A really big thank you for providing specialist support and advice... I am absolutely sure that as a result of your professional input we have been able to negotiate a good commercial deal with minimal risk exposure, or onerous conditions for the Trust. The whole process has again demonstrated the benefit of a shared service approach and I have been delighted with the level of support and responsiveness."
