Rosie Cooper
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether NHS Property Services keeps a schedule of dilapidations and schedule of works.

George Freeman

NHS Property Services deals with Schedules of Dilapidations when these are received from a Landlord at the expiry of a leasehold interest. A financial provision is made to account for potential schedules. Current provisions amount to £113.7 million across 1,083 properties in the portfolio.

Schedules of works are prepared for all major projects of repair, maintenance and improvement. These are reviewed together with existing Planned Preventative Maintenance programmes at individual building level. The budget for undertaking such capital works in the current financial year amounts to £55 million.
