Empathetic, flexible and understanding whilst providing clinical assurance and high-quality governance.

We reduce your waiting lists

By using your spare capacity, we’re able to see a high volume of patients in a short space of time.

Using an insourcing model

By contracting 18 Week Support to work in your NHS Trust, we can help treat more patients, reduce waiting times and improve clinical services.

Which is cost effective

We have developed a pricing model that will not only allow your Trust to commission services cost effectively but also make a small surplus.

Access our service through the NHS Shared business framework

The NHS Shared Business Services framework aims to support the increasingly popular use of insourcing across the NHS to secure extra clinical capacity to meet increasing demand. This solution allows Trusts to retain capacity planning in-house and ensure patients can be seen within the trust. Benefits include increased visibility of the patient pathway and greater resilience of local services.
