Procurement of NHS primary care buildings was reserved for the DH working through PCTs until LIFT was introduced. The DH anticipated that LIFT would effectively mobilise private sector finance and expertise in improving the quality of buildings. But LIFT’s suitability to achieve this is questioned on grounds that it uses market mechanisms that may fail when applied in health. This case-study explored with people directly involved in LIFT their views and experience of how it helped them in procuring desired buildings. It was driven by desire to understand whether and how contextual factors and mechanisms in LIFT supported staff efforts, hoping the findings would influence DH officials in revising the guidance to make LIFT effective.
