What does RHL do?
Realise Health Ltd (RHL), the North East Essex LIFT Company, was established in 2004 under the previous Government's LIFT (Local Improvement Finance Trust) programme, a 25 year public private partnership specifically set up to provide modern, purpose-built facilities within the Borough of Colchester and District of Tendring local communities.
The RHL corporate shareholders include MAMG, Community Health Partnerships (CHP) and the NE Essex PCT, which is due to be abolished on 1st April this year. PCT shareholdings and head leases in LIFT buildings will transfer to CHP.
RHL still operates under the governance of a Strategic Partnering Board (SPB), and in accordance with objectives set out in the Strategic Service Development Plan (SSDP), a legal document that describes the framework within which Realise Health carry out their function. Revisions to the SSDP were made and approved by the SPB
in January 2012.
RHL continues to offer a wide range of value for money partnering services under one umbrella not only to all contractual partners, but also to similar organisations beyond its original boundaries. RHL has the experience and expertise to deliver efficiencies and savings in the provision of services and management of estates, through its own in-house resource and an extensive supply chain.
