The HCD Group leads the way in providing consultancy services to the UK’s huge health sector, providing support across the full range of public and private projects from relatively small local surgery schemes through to major hospital developments.
“Thanks to HCD’s proactive input we were able to address a number of important issues early on, which made sure the building was not only compliant with the relevant Regulations, but also fully lived up to our expectations. The tremendous reaction to the new centre in the first few months of operation demonstrates that our decision to follow a partnership approach on the scheme was the right one.”
Nikki Hopkins, General Manager – £22.5m City of Coventry Health Centre
We have been at the cutting edge of healthcare procurement and innovation for many years. Our experience spans early PFI schemes, through Procure 21 and Procure 21+ and includes NHS LIFT, PPP and private health projects. This long-standing involvement with the health sector ranges from modest surgery projects to £500m+ regional hospital complexes.
We are currently working on major PFI schemes, providing early bid stage advice. Early involvement allows us to deliver key risk and value commentary, bringing real added value to the project. This commentary includes, for instance, areas such as the HTM 05-02 (Health Technical Memorandum) fire code which outlines fire safety provision in the NHS and is a key consideration in health facility design and construction.
