NHS Property Services
Did you know since 2012, most of the hospital and health buildings where “moved” from public ownership to a private company – most people assume that the building is the NHS..Wrong!
Many buildings are owned by a private limited company, NHS Property Services Limited, company number 07888110 and as such its accounts are publicly available at Companies House. Whilst running down buildings and stripping assets, several of the shareholders were each “rewarded” from the profit that is rental income from our NHS to the tune of 200,000 last year.
Yes our cash strapped NHS is paying rent to a private company for the buildings it needs to use. Who benefits.. NHS Property Services Limited shareholders:

Seen the various logos at your local hospital. All private companies contracted (paid) to supply services to the NHS. The biggest is
This is an “Independent Provider” of services which trades under a mind boggling amount of smaller Private and Public Limited Companies, all operating for profit. How long this list is can be seen at Companies House.
Business Rates That Private Companies Pay
Just to add insult to injury, private healthcare trusts are often set up as charities e.g. Nuffield so pay reduced business rates and tax, but because all of the above are corporate bodies, they are subject to standard business rates and Corporation Tax. This featured in this Independent article
Our “state owned” NHS Service which gets large amounts of funding by the government:
- Pays rent for its buildings
- Purchases its healthcare
- Pays the executive salaries of all the shareholders and directors
- Pays business rates
- Pays Tax
- Pays managers to “manage” even down to the paperclip holding your medical records together
- Whats left goes to the doctors and nurses and daily running costs – which sure isn’t a lot!
A prime example of this was the IT crash earlier in the year because the NHS couldn’t afford to replace its aged Windows XP computers. And Nurses and other vital NHS staff are subjected to pay cuts to try and prop up the billions of pounds in debt the NHS is.
Please can anyone from any of the above companies comment below to say I am wrong….
