Premises Charges

Q: We are three practices in a health centre where we are tenants of the PCT, but we are soon all moving into a new primary care centre. At the moment, the practices each pay a nominal health centre charge and annual rates. I queried an increase in rent for one practice some years ago and was informed that the district valuer (DV) set the health centre rent. The PCT also stated that the charges included water, furniture, fittings, heating and lighting. The charges for our area in the new centre are considerably higher than what we pay at present. The rates and lease rent are 100 per cent reimbursable but for utilities we have to pay 60 per cent. Can you advise?
