Working with clinical teams to deliver productive solutions
Trusts face unprecedented challenge to make productivity efficiencies and release savings whilst maintaining quality. Key to this is unlocking the productivity potential in the clinical workforce.
Kingsgate and Dearden HR have a proven track record of delivering improved clinical productivity with significant cost out opportunities.
We believe that the joint approach between the two firms is unique in the marketplace and ensures that Trusts are able to derive the maximum benefit from our Clinical Productivity and HR expertise.
A combined taskforce from both Kingsgate and Dearden HR are deployed into your organisation to work with the clinical teams and management to develop a picture of each speciality and help the Trust work through any complex HR issues that may need to be addressed as part of the review. We achieve this by:
Using our bespoke software and standard methodology we work with the Trust’s clinical teams and operational managers to undertake a deep dive into individual specialties, focusing on all DCC and SPA activity.
This approach ensures that the clinical teams have been involved from the outset and helps ensure maximum buy in.
We engaged Kingsgate and Dearden HR in 2016 to undertake a comprehensive clinical productivity review. Two exemplar specialities were supported through the process to final job planning implementation.
Using bespoke software and expert challenge the reviews covered all aspects of the consultant job role, both DCC and SPAs. The reviews included detailed analysis of elective theatre activity, identifying a 20 plus list out per week opportunity. In addition, new job planning guidance was developed and introduced.
The clinical productivity process matches capacity with the demand required to meet performance targets, maximises use of resources and supports service transformation. The output of the reviews delivered a cost out opportunity of over £1m across 12 specialities.
Kingsgate trained a number of super users and other staff, and continue to provide ongoing expert support, so we are able to embed and sustain the process with minimal external support.
