Abstract

There are two principal elements to consider in relation to the strategic management of any organisation's surplus property. The first is the process by which the property is identified and declared surplus and the second is the procedure for managing such property effectively until disposal finally takes place. This paper is based on the research undertaken to consider: the key characteristics of good “strategic” management of surplus property; how other bodies (private and public) have improved their strategic management of surplus properties in the recent past; how the proposals in “Sold on Health” appear to meet good practice; and any lessons that can be learnt by the National Health Service from this work.
