We’re a forward-thinking organisation that isn’t afraid to try new ways of working.
Over the past 15 years, we’ve invested in new ideas to make sure our health and social care services have the best impact on people’s lives.
Working closely with the NHS and local authorities, we have implemented joined-up services where patients don't have to keep telling their story each time they visit, introduced technology so that health practitioners can spend more time with the people who rely on the services we look after, and empowered our colleagues with the Feel the Difference Fund - dedicated money, owned by our colleagues, to help make the big and small changes that help to change lives.
Our response to the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted how we can quickly turn around solutions to problems to ensure service users continue to receive the best quality care even in the most challenging of times.
Here is our library of case studies to showcase the projects that have made a difference to commissioners and our service users.
If you'd like to talk about working together to deliver similar changes in services you run, or those you commission, get in touch with our Business Development Team.
