Who are we?

We’re an expert team with a broad mix of skills and experience in all aspects of programme and project management and research. We partner with Yorkshire’s top universities and can draw on a wealth of expertise to support your transformation programme.

We want to help you to transform your services to get better outcomes for patients. It’s as simple as that.

How can we help?

Our team helps you to identify, develop and deliver transformational change. We review and redesign services and support change management, as well as producing the evidence to underpin commissioning decisions.

Our new Solutions Portal, developed in-house, offers an insight into the key health issues for every CCG in the country, and highlights some of the solutions we can offer. Have a look at your data here.

Expert service

Making the best decisions for your patients is something which comes naturally to you as clinicians, because it is based on your training and expertise. Making commissioning decisions and implementing service innovation should equally be based on the best available research. Whether you’re reviewing a service, redesigning a care pathway or producing a specification, our expert service can help you.

Our analysis, advice and evidence will underpin your commissioning decision, to give you peace of mind that you’ve done the best for your patients.

Working together

We dovetail with our Projects and programmes service to review and assess global research and expertise and apply this to your transformation programmes. We have partnerships with academics at the Universities of Leeds and York, who quality assure evidence and provide specialist academic input.

Our Expert Service ‘tops and tails’ every project, so that it starts with a thorough review of the evidence base and concludes with a robust evaluation. Our rigorous economic analysis of the impact of your proposed service changes means that you can be assured your service improvements will deliver clinical and cost effectiveness.

Case study: Calderdale

We are currently working with Calderdale CCG to economically evaluate and review primary and community unplanned care in Calderdale. Our service delivery is as follows:

  • Reviewing models of unplanned care.
  • Analysing the impact of urgent care models on access to care, health needs and health inequalities.
  • Analysing the reasons for accessing urgent care.
  • Quality assurance of this work by our university partners.
  • Engaging and consulting with the public as appropriate to ensure that the unplanned care approach is widely acceptable to the people of Calderdale.
  • Monitoring and evaluation of the service change, once implemented.
