The outbreak had demonstrated the need for modern, integrated, local primary healthcare facilities to relieve the pressures being placed on hospitals and A&E departments, it said in a statement.
The FTSE 250-listed firm noted that it has all of its rents effectively guaranteed by the governments in the UK and Ireland and there has been little impact on rental collection.
Around 79% of its rents were collected in the first quarter and PHP expects the remainder to be collected shortly.
It said the latest quarterly dividend of 1.475p will be paid on May 22 with further payments expected to be made in August and November.
After capital commitments, PHP has undrawn loan facilities of £341mln including cash on deposit of £137mln.
“We anticipate that the crisis will highlight the important role primary healthcare will play in the future provision of health services and the continuing movement of services away from over-burdened hospital settings,” the group added.
