How to secure better quality NHS funding for GP surgery healthcare projects

Posted: 29 July 2021

How do you secure better quality NHS funding for GP surgery healthcare projects? Imagine your doctors surgery, turn it upside down and give it a shake. All the bits of equipment and furniture that fall out are not funded by the NHS. i.e. non-fixed furniture and equipment etc.

If you want to maximise your funding capacity from the NHS make sure as much of the furniture is fixed down. Not off the shelf, free standing, loose furniture.

This is especially relevant for work desks, reception counters and seating in waiting areas. Bookshelves, storage units and examination lighting can also be fixed down. Use bespoke joinery items that are fixed to the floor. This can also help with infection control measures as vinyl flooring can also be coved up the sides of furniture.

The image is an early design development sketch of this doctors surgery project where we applied this rule.
