" The LIFT Company is a Public-Private Partnership. It has the following ownership structure:-

"20% Community Health Partnerships (CHP) "20% Local Healthcare Economy (PCT’s and Local Authorities) "60% Primary Plus Ltd (The Private Sector Partner)

"Primary Plus Ltd is a joint venture company set up by John Laing and Bank of Scotland Corporate (now part of Lloyds Banking Group) to participate in LIFT.

"Projects and services are formulated via the Strategic Partnering Board with representatives from all stakeholders and stated in the Strategic Service Delivery Plan, LIFTCos then design, build and maintain new public infrastructure buildings and provide a raft of services, working to the strategy outlined."[1]

The LIFT model (Local Improvement Finance Trust) is a hybrid that took the best from traditional Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs) and Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and what was the existing Primary Care model.
