How BaS LIFT is organised
BaS LIFT shareholders
BaS LIFT is a public private partnership – a joint venture company which has two shareholders:
Community Health Partnerships is owned by the Department of Health and represents its strategic interests. CHP also provides guidance and enables sharing of experience and knowledge between LIFT companies. It has a 40 percent shareholding in BaS LIFT.
Prime LIFT Investments Ltd is the private sector partner and is itself a joint venture between Prime plc and HICL Infrastructure Company Limited. The company has a 60 percent shareholding in BaS LIFT.
Strategic Partnering Board
As with all LIFT Companies, BaS is governed by a Strategic Partnering Agreement (SPA) which sets out how the LIFT Company and other local partner organisations need to cooperate to achieve the best outcomes for the community. Compliance with the SPA is monitored by the Strategic Partnering Board (SPB) which includes representatives of all the SPA signatories.
The main function of the Strategic Partnering Board (SPB) is to determine and agree a shared health and social care strategy for the area covered by the LIFT. The SPB is also responsible for vetting and approving all LIFT projects before they can go forward.
