What our Clients Say




Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

“The Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust were successful in receiving an NHS England Specialist Services “Early Implementer Grant” to implement a Clinical Utilisation Tool as part of the mandatory CQUIN. Integral Health Solutions have been instrumental in bringing together the Early Implementer sites to share learning, network and gain insights from the process to date.

 

We have found the team to be extremely responsive, helpful and supportive in our journey”.

Jo Jones, CUR Project Lead, Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust




Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust

“It is a pleasure to work with Hilary and her team as an early implementer site for the Clinical Utilisation Review Tool.  Hilary and the team have provided advice and support throughout the programme and have addressed all concerns and questions as they have arisen, which has been invaluable.  Hilary and the team’s insight and knowledge of the system’s, CQUIN and procurement process have been instrumental in the development of our Clinical Utilisation Review programme within SRFT.   I am sure that that the good working relationship that we have established will support highly successful outcomes as an early implementer”.

NHS England - National Clinical Utilisation Review Programme

We were commissioned by NHS England to support the development and launch of the CQUIN for Clinical Utilisation Review, which is available to providers and commissioners from April 2015.  We designed and led the national launch event which was held in December 2014, and included international exhibitors of CUR software; international speakers including Kaiser Permanente, United Healthcare Services as well as national innovator sites including Imperial College London, Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospital NHS Trust.  Hilary Heywood and Carole Lavelle, Assistant Director of Nursing and Patient Experience, NHS England, presented jointly on Using CUR to drive whole system transformational change (winning hearts, minds and cultural change).  This was an extremely successful event attended by by over 150 delegates from providers, CCGs and NHS England.

Following the success of the national launch event, Hilary Heywood is now national Programme Director, supporting by the team from Integral Health Solutions.  This next phase of work will result in the establishment of a national CUR procurement framework.  This will will enable NHS providers and commissioners to call off accredited CUR suppliers from a national framework.  In parallel with the procurement framework we are providing support to five early implementer sites and regional / area teams to ensure effective take-up of the national CUR CQUIN.
