NHS England and NHS Improvement published new guidance in November 2018 which updated the way wholly owned subsidiaries are reported to and approved by NHS England and NHS Improvement. Since that time, 34 proposals have been reported to them for classification and potential review.

NHS England and NHS Improvement do not hold data on the number of applications for the formation of a whole owned subsidiary company to manage property and estates that included an appraisal of the option for NHS Property Services to manage those services.
