Governance of HSE Estates

The HSE has in place policies and procedures to ensure management and maintenance of the HSE estate. Infrastructure and facilities are managed to create and sustain a first class physical environment that enhances wellness in our patients and clients, enables and encourages staff, improves staff pride, facilitates easy access for patients to our sites while improving Public Confidence.   Central management of the HSE’s Property Portfolio is required to develop efficiencies and ensure better VFM with regard to purchases, disposals and the negotiation of leases. All property transactions, both disposals and purchase are as a direct response to service and client needs. The Estates Directorate works closely with the other Directorates to ensure that the Capital Plan aligns with service needs and priorities. The aim of the Capital Plan is to improve patient care and outcomes through provision of high quality, appropriate, and efficient health buildings.
