Our skills and other services
We assisted a partnership in acquiring two additional practices which were at risk of closure. This involved the development of a business plan to demonstrate the potential sustainability of the practices to NHS England and an implementation plan outlining the steps needed to deliver the changes.
By working closely with the partners and practice manager, the merger of the practices, team restructure and development of a new strategy for the future of the practices was successfully delivered on time and within budget.
A group of GP practices had a long history of trying to develop a new service for their population but had difficulties in obtaining commissioner approval. We were instructed to develop a business case for this service. This involved a review and audit of the activity data and assessing the potential implications of the service. This provided the operational and clinical justification for the service with a strong empirical basis. The business case was developed with direct references to the strategic objectives of both the national NHS team and local CCG. This ensured the service was compliant with the objectives of the commissioners. The new service was subsequently approved and has moved to the next stage of the commissioning process.
A property developer requested assistance in ensuring their property funding bid offered sufficient information relating to the transformation of services. Documentation was reviewed and discussions were held with the clinicians and GP practices who were seeking to use the new service. This analysis allowed for a complete rewrite in a very short period of time which was well received by the client, the GPs and the CCG.
