Health and Social Care Consultancy
Our team of Health consultants and Social Care consultants have all had many years’ experience at senior management level within the health care economy before utilising their skill and breadth of experience as consultants. Their approach is practical and thorough with an in depth knowledge of all sectors of the health economy which enables integration and cooperation between providers and commissioning organisations.
We work with providers and commissioners to help to improve processes, efficiency and support services in a number of health settings, including acute hospitals, mental health hospitals, GP surgeries and social care provisions. Our health consultants have worked in the health sector to provide consultancy in all areas from estates management, back office system reviews, facilities management and procurement through to the integration of services and pathways for patients. The skills that we employ through all our work include an understanding of healthcare, an ability to analyse the real facts and to create improvements that are achievable. We involve the whole team as much as possible, making sure that they are on board, assisting them through the process and providing the necessary training to ensure that the improvements that we introduce are embraced and can be successfully continued.
We have helped to create significant efficient improvements, an example being this case study of our work with an acute hospital where we employed Lean techniques to enable staff to redesign their work stream. The throughput of operating theatres was improved by 20% by managing the demand, ensuring appropriate patient preparation and timely patient discharge.
Lean in healthcare leads to an organisation which responds flexibly to the demands and clinical needs of patients.
Visibility and accountability have become increasingly important. Our consultants have worked with CCG’s, charities and not for profit organisations to improve their clinical governance by reviewing their processes against best practice and making recommendations.
Social Care Consultancy
With large demographic changes taking place our consultants have been carrying out strategic reviews for clients delivering social care within the local community. Their full understanding of the social care market has resulted in in-depth analysis, and the reviews have revealed surprising results and indicate that substantial cashable savings are achievable. Our team has undertaken needs assessments and trends analyses along with the evaluation of the effectiveness of a variety of initiatives. Proper analysis and obtaining buy in from the whole team ensures sustainability of the supply of adult and child social care services and a cost effective strategy for the local authority.
