Collaboration and successful partnerships: Delivering homes and communities

The long established approach to development whereby local authorities provide the land and a private sector partner contributes the money is becoming less common and less clear cut. Delivery partners are looking at new ways to harness their combined strengths to work together more successfully. We hosted a roundtable at London Real Estate Forum (LREF) with key industry figures from both the public and private sectors with a wealth of experience in setting up and working in partnerships.

Intermediate care: How can private care operators provide pain relief for the NHS?

Over the previous winter the average hospital had approximately 200 patients on its wards who had been deemed medically fit for discharge at a cost estimated to be between £300 and £360 a day. Many care providers have said there is sufficient availability in their sector to accommodate these patients, so why aren’t the transfers taking place and what can be done to avoid the crisis repeating itself this winter?

Housing Delivery Partnerships – Removing barriers through collaboration

Partnerships of all kinds are not easy things to get right. They take work and commitment, good will, flexibility and compromise. That is no less true of housing delivery partnerships. Partnerships between the private sector, housing associations and public sector organisations with the aim of increasing the supply of new homes of all types are a vital part of the effort to tackle the housing crisis.

A Healthy Relationship: how can organisations effectively partner with the NHS?
