Acute Healthcare Foundation Trust - West Midlands

Acute Healthcare Foundation Trust – West Midlands

A large general hospital based in the West Midlands with a revenue of £317m in FY13/14 and a deficit of £2.5m therefore requiring a cost improvement programme.

The Trust was under severe financial pressure and required savings from specialities across the Trust with medical productivity and job planning being a big priority.

Client Testimonials:

After a large hidden deficit emerged at the Trust and NHS Improvement allowed us the chance to manage the Turnaround internally, we sought some support from a “proper” Turnaround Director and Steve was selected from a long list as he stood out for his experience and right level of support and challenge. Steve has acted as a mentor for me personally and is always a source of wise advice. Kingsgate and Dearden HR as companies have worked with us over the last year to deliver a really successful CIP programme and their work on our Medical Productivity Work Stream in particular has been excellent. The team are knowledgeable, pragmatic and can do; I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing expert support with savings plan and especially to work with medical staff as their understanding of job planning, service design and demand and capacity planning has been exemplary. What sets them apart from most consultancy firms is their knowledge and experience of the NHS, and their ability to build relationships with all staff groups and their ethical approach to working in the public sector.
