Scottish Health Technical Note 00-01 provides guidance on the methodology to be used to ensure a standard and consistent approach.



It is essential that the land and property assets of the NHS Estate in Scotland positively contribute to the delivery of healthcare services. In order to develop a Property Asset Management Strategy (PAMS) or Regional Asset Management Strategy (RAMS), it is necessary to carry out an appraisal of the existing land and property as a baseline assessment of the current NHS Estate. This manual and its appendices provide guidance on the methodology to be used to ensure a standard and consistent approach is adopted across all Boards.
