Flexible workforce capacity

Our virtual clinical workforce is available for deployment as needed, with flexible scale-up or scale-down options available in response to changing demand.

Reduction in unnecessary appointments frees workforce capacity for other priorities.

Additional resource has already been recruited, or is in process, to ensure that future demand is met.

Responsive workforce solutions to meet NHS Partner needs.

Advantageous financial case

Variable cost savings – reduced cost of waiting- list clearance and investigations, reduced locum cost, redeployment of workforce and facilities.

Long-term cost savings – reduced diagnostic and facilities requirements and early treatment reduces overall cost of care.

Fixed and semi-fixed cost savings – reduced administration and staffing costs and redeployment opportunities, reduced Consultant capacity requirements.

Significant cost reduction.

Reduced waiting times

Our experts can review and validate Patient Tracking Lists to identify priority patients.

New referrals are dealt with in a timely manner to reduce waiting times. Handling of new patient referrals is flexible, through primary care or hospital.

Follow-up and internal consultant-to-consultant referrals can also be included.
