Patient Care

We use new ideas in logistics and fleet - and expertise in transport operations to provide the savings now required across the NHS.

We understand the need for efficient and effective services in austere times. We also understand that this must be achieved while still providing the high quality of care patients deserve.

We have helped many CCGs combine multi-supplier patient transport services into one, TUPEing large numbers of staff and simplifying management. This has allowed us to provide consistent quality of service and cost savings for the NHS.

Patient transport includes services for non-emergency, high dependency, bariatric and secure/mental health patients. Combined with our business process management expertise, fleet and training service we are also looking to expand into bluelight services and specialist clinical transport.

We are experts in crafting bespoke business processing packages to meet the needs of the health service while ensuring patient confidentiality and cost effectiveness. Our size allows us to flexibly deploy our expertise and ideas to best suit the changing needs of the NHS, flexing resources to meet demand.

We understand that parking, traffic and licensing enforcement is often a contentious issue for hospitals, but necessary. Compliance to site rules ensures that critical areas are clear for emergency vehicles and parking is protected for patients and their visitors.

We provide sensitive but effective enforcement at hospitals and medical centres, an important part of maintaining access and safety. Combining our enforcement expertise with that of our consultancy, estate management and back office teams allows us to deliver more benefits through a joined up service. We offer all forms of enforcement including: parking, environmental, licensing and moving traffic.

Identity Authentication

Our specialist team has exclusive access to world leading technology and the expertise to successfully detect identity fraud, reducing your risk by providing robust vetting and audit evidence.

Working with both government and the private sector we understand the issues faced by employers recruiting staff, where fraud often goes undetected. In health the implications of unqualified staff providing care can be serious. Where bank/agency staff are used the NHS is reliant on agencies undertaking the comprehensive checks needed to confirm identity, right to work and provide specialist care.

We ensure you don't employ someone not eligible to work in the UK or those using forged documents. We can do this directly for your staff and carry out random checks on agency staff to ensure the quality of care is never compromised.
