The number and proportion of NHS Property Services’ properties that are classified as vacant is shown in the following table. The Company classifies buildings as vacant when 90% or more of the building’s area is unused.

Vacant (90% or Greater)
Non-vacant (Less than 90%)
For this response the following assumptions have been made:
- ‘Property’ refers to a physical building or structure rather than a site or legal holding;
- Only those buildings which have been verified as live interests through recent validation exercise have been included; and
- Properties such as car parks or land parcels which have no internal area and are not expected to have tenants will be classed as non-vacant.
