Waiting Time Targets

If you have a large number of long waiters and are unable to achieve or sustain Government targets in a service we can provide the solutions to these issues and implement them. We will scope the problem by reviewing your data and by meeting clinicians, booking staff and validation staff to get to the root of the problem. We will then prepare and implement a realistic cost-effective plan. The specific areas we cover include:

  • Referral to Treatment (RTT) targets
  • Cancer targets
  • Diagnostic (DM01) target

We can also assist with A&E targets by putting you in touch with our partner company that specialises in this area.

Maximising Productivity

We can help make your hospital more productive in all the key areas. We will review the areas/specialities you want us to focus on by undertaking a Capacity & Demand analysis and by meeting key staff that deliver these services to establish the current processes and what the blockages are to being more productive. We will then prepare and implement a cost-effective plan that aims to overcome the main blockages and starts to deliver results. The specific areas we cover include:

  • Theatres
  • Endoscopy
  • Catheter Labs.
  • Outpatients
  • Radiology
  • Medical Workforce, specifically
    • Consultant Job Planning
    • Junior Doctor Rotas

Maintaining Financial Control

Cost Improvement Programmes (CIPs) have become the norm as Trusts struggle to balance the books. However,  CIPs rarely live up to their promises by often delivering little if any financial savings. We will review and sense-check all current CIPs and advise on what can realistically be achieved. We will then prepare and implement a cost-effective plan to deliver the revised CIPs. The specific CIP areas we cover include:

  • Theatres
  • Endoscopy
  • Catheter Labs.
  • Outpatients
  • Radiology
  • Medical Workforce
