NHS Open Space shortlisted for multiple industry awards

We are delighted to announce that NHS Open Space is a finalist in this year’s Estate Gazette Tech Awards and Smarter Working Live Awards.

The programme has been shortlisted under ‘Innovation’, ‘Big Picture’ and ‘Asset Management Innovation’ categories – illustrating the growing recognition of the initiative’s value across the property sector.

Chris King, Principal Strategic Manager at NHS Property Services and lead of the programme, says “it’s great to have the programme recognised as we grow and evolve, shortlisted alongside respected peers and some great projects. We’ve come a long way since the launch of our new booking platform in April last year, and we’re now preparing for an expansion to 40 new sites in Autumn this year. Leveraging technology to improve the NHS is central to the NHS long term plan, so industry recognition for how we’re applying this to the NHS estate is really exciting.”

The ceremonies are in September and November respectively, so stay tuned for updates.
