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.
At 18 Week Support, we can quickly and easily help trusts minimise the adverse consequences of COVID-19 clinical capacity decisions for their patients on urgent non-COVID-19 pathways.
We know there is a great deal of uncertainty, both personally and professionally, for the whole 18WS Team at the moment so, as you are our health services’ greatest asset, we thought would dedicate a section of the website to keep you all well informed during this difficult period.
Thank you for your ongoing support.

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.
No need for formal tendering as all of the groundwork has been done
