  • This purpose of this project is to provide a summary picture of the condition of the estate of London's acute hospitals. It attempts to bring together information on the estate from standard returns and locally obtained evidence. The main issues that the study has tried to address are: how well maintained are the hospitals in London?; What is the size of the backlog of maintenance problem?; What does the available evidence about functional suitability and use of space lead one to conclude?; What steps are managers in the hospitals studied taking to try to deal with these problems? The basic structure of this report is an overview of the estate and measures taken to rationalise it across the four Thames regions; followed by a detailed analysis of a selection of major hospital sites in central London. The intention throughout is to draw general lessons from particular circumstances.
