We first helped the NHS achieve better value from their contracts more than 25 years ago. We had developed unique and innovative strategies to control and minimise leasing contract costs and quickly became their leading lease advisor.
Over those years we’ve helped more than half of acute trusts find more than £200m in savings across almost every aspect of their contracts and equipment-related spend – from maintenance and asset finance to managed services, asset resale and replacement planning.
The data and experience we’ve accumulated now provides essential insight, which we use to help Trusts deliver CIP, minimise whole-life costs and improve supplier performance.
From contract management to diagnostics transformation, our team of 50 delivers a range of services to NHS trusts, CCGs and ICSs.
Driving optimal outcomes from contract management
You know that improving your contract management will deliver improved outcomes. Our innovative approach to contract management will help you deliver whole-life value and savings, improved supplier performance and change management while reducing contract-related risks.
Expert management of specialist categories
Effective category management requires real category expertise and significant resource. For almost 30 years, we have helped our clients deliver savings, control and compliance in a range of specialist categories – from hard FM and medical device maintenance to leasing and waste management.
Delivering more for less from stretched equipment budgets
Your need for extensive equipment to support your operations represents a significant challenge, in terms of investment, of compliance and of risk management. From financing solutions and investment planning to management of maintenance, our equipment management service will help you safely deliver the equipment you need.
Delivering whole-life value
With experience of both procuring and managing large and complex contracts, we deliver a cradle-to-grave solution, focusing on building and maintaining whole-life value.
Solving today’s urgent capacity gap
Diagnostics capacity has long been a challenge, but Covid has created significant demand that cannot currently be met. Our capacity management solutions allow Trusts, ICSs and CCGs to address the capacity gap quickly and effectively.
Helping to transform your imaging and pathology services
Diagnostics is changing fast. Pressed to deliver more with less, deal with new entities such as ICSs and networks and deliver capacity, you’re seeking solutions to help address these changes cost-effectively. From demand management to network setup and procuring major contracts to managing outsourced services, we’re here to help.
Unique technology that drives activity and puts you in control
From procuring and managing important contracts to management of equipment, the right technology is critical to drive activity, store data and effectively manage suppliers. All of our services are underpinned by our unique online platform, OPTIMiSe, developed over 20 years to put you in control.
In a major research exercise, conducted in association with HCSA, we asked NHS organisations about their attitudes to contract management and their ability to deliver effective contract management. The detailed findings are now available.Get your copy
