Britain’s National Health Service (NHS) is such a celebrated UK institution, a choreographed tribute to its 68-year history dominated the opening of London’s 2012 Olympic Games. Now in the wake of England’s Brexit decision and the expected hit to the construction sector there, NHS Chief Executive Simon Stevens suggests the country should receive a new infrastructure fund from the government to “turbo-charge the construction industry.”
The mildly run-down state of the NHS architecture around the country has Stevens wondering aloud if the British government might be able to pump a weekly £350 stipend into the NHS for upgrading and refurbishing of NHS buildings, this at a time when NHS’ own capital investment fund is being spent on simply maintaining day-to-day operations, as reported by Construction News.
