NHS Campus Framework Agreement, Epsom, Surrey

NHS seek architects to provide replacement accomodation suitable for those with learning difficulties for current residents of its Epsom Campus

UK Government directive required all National Health Service campuses for adults with learning disabilities to be closed, and the residents re-provided with suitable alternative accommodation and care and support fulfilling the aspirations set out in ‘Valuing People Now’.

Surrey County Council will take on commissioning responsibility for services for specific residents of the NHS Campus in Epsom, once those residents move from the Campus environment to alternative accommodation. The Council wishes to have provided that alternative accommodation, for those specific residents to move to. A number of outcomes are sought through the framework agreement, these being:

  • Provision of alternative accommodation suitable for supported living with an element of ‘future proofing’ to cope with changing needs; and,
  • Legally protected tenancies in the alternative accommodation for the former Campus residents,
  • Long term property management arrangements for the alternative accommodation.

The alternative accommodation can be either new-build, existing properties that are secured and adapted to meet the requirements of Campus residents, or shared purchase.

Up to 40 Campus residents will be required to be provided with alternative accommodation suitable for supported living. It is desirable to locate that alternative accommodation within the Borough of Epsom and Ewell in Surrey, although provision of accommodation in neighbouring localities in Surrey for a small number of residents will be considered. Surrey County Council will partner with housing providers who can demonstrate an ability to provide accommodation for people with learning disabilities and good oversight of service provision to achieve provision of suitable accommodation; the housing providers will take ownership of the accommodation and Surrey County Council will protect its capital investment and that of other funding organisations through legal charges.
