Our Healthcare experts have successfully delivered health commissions for numerous public and private healthcare providers, including acute hospitals, tertiary specialist centres, private provider hospitals, clinics, wellness centres, mental health facilities and community hospitals, using various procurement routes and contracts.

Our involvement often begins at Initial Agreement stage and continues through all business case approval stages, including option appraisals and then on to the delivery of the completed facility. As such we are fully cognisant of and able to support the NHS Business Case process. Our team enjoy working alongside NHS Board managers, clinical teams, consultants, healthcare planners and estates and finance teams, which we believe gives us a thorough understanding of how to overcome the ‘challenges’ that modern day healthcare procurement presents to NHS Boards and the like.
