Partnering with you

We work in partnership with our NHS clients to develop outstanding healthcare solutions which put the needs of patients and staff first, providing services and facilities that reflect the business aims of each individual Trust.

Our open and collaborative approach ensures we develop long-term relationships with NHS Trusts as we work with them to deliver flexible solutions which meet the requirements and aspirations of all stakeholders. The repeat business we have secured with a number of Trusts is testament to the success of this approach.

The IHP team has really grasped where we are coming from and what our priorities are. They’ve made sure the right people with the necessary healthcare experience are involved at the right stages, and have put forward positive suggestions which have improved the project.

Often involved in projects at an early stage, we are able to deliver benefits from inception through to completion and beyond. Our partnering approach secures the maximum input of all design disciplines from the outset, increasing the quality of design solutions and delivering cost and programme savings.

The integrated teamwork and effective communication our approach promotes means projects benefit fully from the specialist healthcare expertise of our highly experienced supply chain.

From architecture and health planning to building services, commercial issues and specialist advice on matters such as sustainability and medical equipment, this input allows us to deliver first class facilities which optimise operational and whole-life costs while remaining capable of adapting to changing service delivery methods.

At the heart of our approach is the drive towards our continued improvement as we work to apply lessons learnt to future projects, sharing knowledge with all parties through supply chain workshops and passing this information on to colleagues across the framework.
