Interserve Prime to speak at industry event about joint venture success

Interserve Prime (IP) will be at this week’s Inside Government event in London, speaking alongside University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) about the positive impact of their commercial partnership.

The presentation is part of a one-day industry forum being held on Thursday 25 January 2018 at the Royal College of Physicians. Entitled ‘Establishing and Managing NHS Joint Ventures’, the event will provide attendees from across the health system with an introduction to the opportunities presented by joint venture partnerships and the benefits of cross-sector working – from enhancing efficiency savings to realising opportunities for revenue generation.

IP and UHS will demonstrate how their Commercial Estates Development Partnership (CEDP), established in 2014, has delivered a number of benefits for the Trust, including unlocking commercial opportunities and providing the additional capacity and capability to deliver its strategic masterplan.

Development Director, Ewan Forsyth, will be representing IP while Peter Baker, Project Director for Commercial Development, will be speaking on behalf of UHS.

Commenting on the event, Ewan said: “The Inside Government forum is a great opportunity for us to talk about the practical aspects of our partnership and the results we are delivering together. We’ll be highlighting some of the projects the CEDP has made possible and sharing some of the ingredients for successful partnering.

“We are looking forward to sharing our story with delegates on Thursday and hopefully inspiring them to consider joint ventures of their own.”
