Discovering the best in your workforce to drive change to improve efficiency
Using nearly 20 years’ experience and proven methodologies, we’ll work with you to drive change and improve efficiency within your trust or region to ensure a streamlined approach. In response to excessive time and bureaucracy surrounding statutory and mandatory training, employment checks, and doctors’ rotations, we partnered with HR for London and NHS Employers to develop a vital, custom-made service for HR Directors and Trusts across London.
Helping to support you, supporting patients
Our purpose is to help healthcare organisations optimise the skills of their workforce, to develop and recruit the right people in the right way and to plan their workforce with a view to improving productivity, quality and patient care. The London Streamlining Programme was a prime example of the positive impact our support can have on your organisation’s workforce and service delivery.

National Competency Frameworks
As the leading authority on national competency frameworks, national occupational standards, and healthcare apprenticeships, we align with national priorities from the Department for Health and Social Care and Health Education England. As pro-active partners, we support the healthcare sector to deliver high-quality, sustainable workforce skills for the future.
Six Step Methodology
Our approach helps ensure health employers have the right staff, with the right skills to deliver cost-effective, high-quality patient care. The critical Six Step Methodology helps NHS and healthcare employers identify the purpose and scope of a strategic workforce plan, why it’s needed, and what it will deliver.
Research & Evaluation
Our industry-leading expertise in national and international workforce research includes robust techniques to fully evaluate workforce and healthcare service challenges, from scenario planning and labour-market intelligence to skills audits and more. Our critical evaluation solutions really get under the skin of your workforce needs.
The Care Certificate
The Care Certificate is an identified set of standards that health and social care workers adhere to in their daily working life. Designed with the non-regulated workforce in mind, the Care Certificate gives everyone the confidence that workers have the same introductory skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.
Primary Care Workforce Strategy
We support the development of a skilled, sustainable workforce at local levels, for improved primary care services that deliver public benefit. Addressing primary care workforce challenges is our priority, helping to better understand and support the improvement of patient care before health issues escalate to acute settings.
Workforce Planning Workshops & Insights
Our annual programme of updates, news, and insights, as well as regional and national workforce planning events, brings together industry leaders, share best practice, and focus on today’s real-world challenges in the health sector. Our high-calibre thought-leadership insights and events raise the profile of workforce planning methods and issues.
Using the baselining and benchmarking information proved to be the key to providing a rationale for change which benefited the trust and our staff. We are confident that we got the right balance between reducing risk, maintaining the quality of training and achieving more for less.
