Delivering £200m in savings for NHS Trusts

We first helped the NHS achieve better value from their contracts 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.

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.

Alison Masterman - Environment and Infrastructure General Manager
Basildon & Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

They came to us with a project that had the potential to deliver considerable savings. They worked with all the relevant stakeholders to deliver within the required timescales. The result – a 23% reduction in our annual spend in this category. They provided a range of reporting to support the achievement against CIP target.

Driving savings is critical for any NHS Trust today. Increasingly, when the quick wins have been delivered a more robust approach is required. They brought resource, knowledge, skills and control to a difficult area of spend. They offered confidence to the clinicians, supporting them and us through the nerve wracking process of testing the markets, in areas that often remain with the OEM unchallenged. Working with them ensures whole life costs are considered and the net benefit to the Trust reached over £1M.

Penny Hilton - Head of Procurement
Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

From the outset they have driven this project and engaged with stakeholders across the Trust to help drive it to a successful conclusion. They have been truly excellent throughout – we have a result that, at the outset, I would not have though possible. Not only are we now positioned to deliver far better patient care, we have done this by reducing rather than increasing costs.
