Estates and facilities

Data collections covering the estates and facilities functions within the NHS are undertaken via the EFM Information Management system.


This is a data warehouse containing data on various different returns each NHS Trust has to complete, some dating back to 1999/2000, and covers a great variety of information ranging from Estates Information Returns, Fires, Defects and Failures to the spend on such things as cleanliness and food in Hospitals. The system also allows the NHS to undertake benchmarking within the returns to assist in performance management.
