• Bridging the gaps between health, social care, lifesciences and technology providers

    Leading edge Management Consultancy

  • What we do

    We work closely with health and social care organisations, life science businesses and companies providing technology solutions, providing independent insight into how to work together for the benefit of all.

    Managing change

    Change or transformation is only good if it is sustainable, improves performance and delivers tangible benefits. We help you to identify the opportunities, shape and then manage delivery of successful change projects.

    Using technology

    The news is littered with tales of failed technology adoption, especially within healthcare and that's because thinking about the technology isn't enough. We interpret business needs to identify how technology can be used effectively.

    Think about the customer

    Having the most advanced product or service doesn't guarantee sales. We help you to make sure your offerings are, and continues to be, what customers really wants.

    Much has already been written about the state of Procurement across NHS England and more will be written as a direct consequence of the government plan (“Better Procurement, Better Value, Better Care: A Procurement Development Programme for the NHS” – August 2013). The question here, however, is...
    In the previous posting I suggested that one of the issues holding back businesses, and in particular the effectiveness of eProcurement implementations, was an inherent lack of trust between the organisation and its employees.

    Owen has a deep understanding of procurement technology, but combines that with communication skills, and a clear sense of procurement and business strategy and delivery – a rare combination! The e-Procurement programme in Scotland is a real world-class success, and he’s played a major role in it through his work in driving progress and adoption of the technology in the NHS.

    Owen is a very professional supply chain manager and contributed to the success of many projects within BAA that I was Project managing.
