Leading Anchor Organisations Masterclass 4: Public land public values – progressive NHS estates strategies?


The NHS is committed to addressing the social determinants of health, improve health outcomes and reduce health inequalities. Anchor institutions are large public sector organisations which are rooted in place and connected to their communities, such as universities, local authorities, and hospitals and work together with their communities to tackle these challenges. Anchors have significant assets and spending power and are often a significant employer in an area and can consciously use these resources to benefit communities. Traditionally anchors focus on employability, procurement  and sustainability strategies and can, when aligned across the ICS partner organisations, contribute significantly to the economic situation and help to reduce health inequalities.  It can also contribute to addressing the workforce supply issues across the health and care sector.

To Consider leadership issues and deepen the understanding of anchor institutions and their potential to solve some NHS challenges and also reduce inequalities, this mini masterclass is for all staff nationally, working in the public sector to share, adopt and adapt existing good practice from other anchor institutions.

About the Master class 

Public land public values – progressive NHS estates strategies?

Public land should be more than just a commodity. Wherever possible, it should be used to drive social, economic and environmental value and address the wider determinants of health. Nevertheless, land usage and disposal in an NHS context is heavily centralised which presents challenges for the progressive use of land and estates – particularly surplus land. Can we develop local progressive estates strategies? Some places are doing it? What is the art of the possible here?
