What We do

‘…We don’t just change we transform…’

The challenges facing health and social care are unprecedented;

a growing older population with greater demands and expectations; a need to deliver improvements in the quality, organisation and outcomes of care; an imperative to increase productivity and value whilst ensuring patient safety.

 

The climate of prolonged financial restraint has resulted in intense financial and service pressures.  Business as usual is not sustainable. As the NHS Forward View highlights, addressing these challenges requires a new approach to developing sustainable models of care that will secure high quality, efficient and effective care for the individual – care that is personalised, better co-ordinated and responsive to changing needs and circumstances. 

 

In response to these challenges, health and care economies across the country are developing new models of care inspired by NHS England’s (NHSE) Five Year Forward View (5YFV).  New care models are grounded in the concepts of accountable care and population health, whereby a system’s finite resources are more effectively allocated to meet the health and care needs of the population as a result of health and care organisations working collaboratively as a unified system, rather than a composition of several organisations working independently to pursue their own respective interests.

 

Whilst the challenges facing our NHS are urgent, the need for transformational change must not be seen as a one-off project, but integral to our way of operating – part of the DNA of our health service, and key to accelerating this comes down to its people, both now and in the future.
