25 years of delivering value for the NHS

Since 1994, the NHS has benefitted from our expertise, insight and technology to deliver savings, real control and improved supplier performance. We work with NHS organisations to deliver whole-life value for Contracts, Equipment, Capacity and Diagnostics.

Contract Lifecycle

Transforming whole-life procurement and management of contracts

Procurement and management of contracts is an enormous challenge for NHS organisations. Every year we procure and manage thousands of contracts on behalf of NHS trusts. Unless actively checked, value leaks away at every stage of the procurement and management lifecycle. We can prevent value leaking away and deliver not only savings and improved governance, but also maximising whole-life value.

Equipment Lifecycle

Helping you get more less from stretched equipment budgets

Few NHS Trusts have sufficient capital to meet their asset replacement programmes. So it’s never been more important to achieve best value from every penny you invest. We can help. We’ll help you make the right decisions at the outset. Then, with active management of costs, change and suppliers, we’ll help you lock in that value and drive further savings.

 

Diagnostics Lifecycle

Building networks and transforming delivery of Diagnostics services

The Lifecycle consulting team brings a wealth of diagnostics experience and have worked to shape the future of diagnostic services in England and across the globe for more than a decade. Whether you’re building an imaging network, transforming delivery of your pathology services or managing outsourced contracts, the team has the experience to deliver results.

Capacity Lifecycle

Meeting the Covid/Non-Covid capacity challenge

Releasing and redeploying capacity to deal with the backlog of elective surgery and diagnostics, while maintaining sufficient capacity to deal with current and future Covid-19 cases, represents the next big challenge facing hospitals. Capacity Lifecycle offers a bespoke one-stop solution for delivering additional clinical capacity, either utilising or re-purposing existing facilities or within new modular units.

OPTIMiSe drives everything

We have more than 6,000 contracts under active management for the NHS. And managing every aspect of the contract – procurements, renewals, costs and supplier performance – so that nothing falls through the cracks is an enormous challenge. We couldn’t do it without our proprietary technology platform, OPTIMiSe, that drives activity and puts everything you need to know right at your fingertips.

They are not the kind of nameless, faceless consultants who make surface level recommendations and then leave before the real work begins. They know their stuff and can make intelligent conceptual leaps – they have more than the obvious in their repertoire. If there are savings to be had and you engage properly as a client, they will tough it out with you and deliver them.
