You have a vision for overcoming the current challenges and continuing to deliver your services to the people who need them most. You may also want to expand and grow the number of service users you can help.
We have a vision too – to take our knowledge and experience and use it to give health and social care organisations the business tools they need to remain viable and to continue to grow in the current market conditions.
Our straightforward approach to complex business challenges enables the organisations we work with to continue to deliver services that have a positive impact both on communities and individuals.
What makes us different?
Our directors are extremely well informed about the current market place and share skills across a range of vital disciplines including Healthcare, Commissioning and Social Impact. All of our senior consultants are highly qualified in their fields and we strive to stay at the forefront of what we do.
With an aging population creating a rising demand for services, at a time when government purse strings are tightening, the demands on the healthcare sector will continue to increase.
Fragmented care pathways only add to the challenges, but those providers who are able to embrace technological advances and find innovative ways to improve and deliver services are those most likely to survive and thrive.
The social care sector is seeing changes in provision against a background of dramatic and ongoing local authority funding cuts.
With the emphasis on helping people to live as independently as possible, and the move to personalisation of health and social care, there are new challenges in the sector.
Service user choice has created a need for marketing services in a way that appeals to the end users.
With a move away from grant dependency and an increasing need to compete in order to deliver services, third sector organisations need to develop the skills to operate in a more commercial environment, while still delivering core services.
It has also become increasingly acceptable to use repayable investment, or social finance, in order to fund growth and invest in new services. Organisations who engage focused business and commercial expertise will be much more able to compete in the current climate.
