The NHS Transformation Unit has moved offices, following a review of its organisational culture and recent expansion of its teams.
Previously co-located with other NHS organisations at 3 Piccadilly Place in Manchester, the 45-strong team is now working from 11 Ducie Street as of Friday 1st September.
The building overlooks the Piccadilly Canal Basin with exceptionally high standards for energy efficiency, being both BREEAM Excellent and Carbon neutral rated.
It was designed by BDP, the major international practice of architects, designers, engineers and urbanists, who also occupy the building. It provides large open-plan areas including a central hub space at ground floor level with views over the canal.
The NHS Transformation Unit was established in 2015 and is an internal NHS consultancy providing services for the NHS by the NHS. It specialises in large scale transformation, particularly acute service redesign, along with financial analytics, programme management and public consultation services. It has already led on a number of high profile projects, including the trailblazing Healthier Together programme, the starting point for the transformation of acute services in Greater Manchester.
Leila Williams, chief executive, said: “It has been an exciting few years for the Transformation Unit and the recent review of the organisational culture concluded that a new office location would further support the long term development of the organisation.
“11 Ducie Street is an exceptional building, which is near our previous accommodation and still benefits from excellent transport connections, and it really meets and current and future needs.”
