This policy lays out the procedure for the application and allocation of accommodation at Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (ASPH), hereafter referred to as “the Trust”. There are three sets of accommodation, managed by several organisations:
- Optivo Housing - onsite accommodation at St Peter’s;
- Vivid Homes - Sandgates
- A2 Dominion Group - Ashford accommodation.
These organisations are referred to as the Trust’s Accommodation Partners.
This policy has been set out in conjunction with the legal and nomination agreement between the Trust and its Accommodation Partners. Tenancies are usually issued by way of Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements made between the Tenant and the Trust’s Accommodation Partners – monitored by the Estates and Facilities directorate of the Trust.
The provision of staff accommodation is essential for the successful recruitment and retention of staff for the Trust and provides modern and affordable flats to rent located on or close to the hospital sites.
