CASE STUDY > Notional Rent Assessment

Avicenna Medical Centre, Wales

BW Healthcare Surveyors achieve a 7.4% increase in Notional Rent reimbursement for Avicenna Medical Practice in South Wales.


Our specialist primary care team helped Avicenna Medical Centre appeal against their Notional Rent assessment from NHS Wales. We undertook a free initial assessment followed by a detailed survey and inspection of the surgery before instigating a challenge to the Notional Rent on behalf of the practice.

Through the course of professional and constructive discussions with the Health Board Valuer (appointed by NHS Wales) we were able to successfully negotiate an increase in reimbursement in the following key areas;

  • Increased the unit rate (£ per sqm) applied to approved reimbursable space


Our professional representation resulted in a 7.4% increase in notional rent reimbursement for the practice and the case was resolved in just over 4 months from the date the practice sent over their Notional Rent assessment, to reaching a settlement with the Health Board Valuer.

Mr Khan, Managing Partner at Avicenna Medical Centre was extremely happy with the outcome;

Very happy with the way BW Healthcare Surveyors handled our appeal against our notional rent assessment, they were very professional and kept us informed at each step of their negotiations.

Very pleased with the 7.4% increase, will really help when having to fund repairs to the building in the current climate with ever increasing building materials.

Will use their service again in the future if needed.

The increase that we achieved not only boosted the surgery’s annual income but is also highly likely to have increased the investment value of the premises.
