Outsourcing for health


Appointing and managing external third party providers can be complex and time consuming and getting it wrong can be costly and disruptive to your business.

Successful relationships are based on cultural fit, trust, experience and alignment of systems and processes. From initial due diligence to tender, negotiation and exit planning, our team provides strategic advice throughout the outsourcing cycle. Our aim is to ensure you have the right suppliers on board to support and grow your business.

What we do...

  • Full service solution – offshore/onshore, multi-sourcing, shared services or in-sourcing, mutualisation, from Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (TUPE) and benchmarking to audit and exit planning.

  • Ongoing support and coaching – toolkits and guides available on exit management, benchmarking, TUPE, outsourcing and due diligence, service level agreements (SLAs), key performance indicators (KPIs) and shared services.

  •  We can also provide advice and support to you or an employee group who are considering establishing a mutual venture to provide services back to the parent body.
