Our properties house GP services, community nursing, rehabilitation services, outpatients, diagnostic services, pharmacies, dental services, and other community services. 


We work in partnership with local health and care systems and the local LIFTcos to align our portfolio to emerging clinical service models and service contract needs.  Our purpose is to provide innovative and sustainable spaces for patient care.  We have three main arms - investment specialists, estate managers and advisory service regarding strategic estates matters.  We strive to lead the field in what we do and our expertise is highly valued by those we work with.
