NHS Open SpaceYour access to flexible, bookable NHS space

With NHS Open Space, a service developed by NHS Property Services, you can now book from almost 1,000 NHS rooms across 150 primary care sites on a flexible and pay-as-you-go basis. Our spaces – available nationwide – range from examination rooms, to offices, to group activity spaces, and can be booked by the hour, session, or day. 

For health, wellbeing, and community services this means more choice and flexibility, and transparency on room pricing and availability to help plan ahead. If plans change, you can cancel bookings for a full refund with 48 hours’ notice. Following a quick and easy booking process on our online platform, you can be sure of a quality on site service and support, meaning less time spent on room booking admin and more time focusing on your patients. 

Our ambition for NHS Open Space is to make best use of NHS buildings, opening to a wider range of services so communities can access more from their local health hub. For health commissioners, it also builds a better understanding of who is using NHS space and how, so we can further align property provision with health service needs.
