Octopus Healthcare has announced the recent appointment of Oliver Goodman to the group.

Goodman joins the property and asset management team as property asset manager and will be involved in the management of the primary care properties in the MedicX Fund portfolio of purpose-built single and multi-tenanted primary healthcare premises across England and Scotland.

The MedicX Fund is a specialist primary healthcare infrastructure in modern purpose-built properties in the UK, with a healthcare property investment portfolio of over 150 properties.

Octopus Healthcare helps GPs, CCGs, and healthcare operators gain access to investment, such as the MedicX Fund, to deliver new buildings and improve access to healthcare services for their local communities.

Previously with BNP Paribas Real Estate, where he was a lease advisory surveyor, Goodman has a wealth of experience in office, retail, and industrial properties on behalf of landlords and tenants across London, the South East and Scotland.

At Octopus Healthcare, he will deal with day-to-day management issues, and identify strategies and implement value add projects by undertaking lease regears, refurbishments and extensions across the portfolio.

He will also oversee rent reviews and the lease renewal process across the portfolio, while assisting in the preparation and review of quarterly portfolio valuations.

On his appointment, he said: “I’m very much looking forward to working with GPs and other primary care professionals to help them deliver healthcare services into the future.”

James Young, head of property and asset management at Octopus Healthcare, added:“I’m delighted to welcome Oliver Goodman to our growing team and his appointment will provide even more support to our primary care partners.

“The MedicX Fund is a leading investor in modern, purpose-built primary care premises, providing communities with access to a range of healthcare services in their local areas and enabling primary care providers to meet increased demand from patients.”
