The need for high quality integrated health and care services increases as pressures on the system grow, including the rising number of patients with complex conditions and our ever-increasing expectations of the NHS in the digital age. Achieving this integration amidst rising financial pressures – dealing with more people, with more complex needs, within tighter budgets – across a fragmented system is challenging to say the least. The growing concern is how can the health sector perform today and transform for tomorrow?

SOME OF OUR RECENT WORK
Strategic roadmap development and governance review:
Gate One supported a regulator in developing a strategic roadmap to transform in response to the changing needs of the health sector. Our support was focussed on successful strategy articulation, operating model design, and delivery blueprint design, including co-working around true benefits realisation.
Working closely with our client, we planned the transformation, including prioritising service changes, implementing new governance alongside their operational commitments, and developing an integrated roadmap of changed over the next three years.
By truly understanding the complexities of the changing environment and building the flexibility to adapt to these, our client is now able to evolve and adapt in a way that prioritises overall system impact on service users and patients.
Quality strategy development:
In an acute NHS Trust that serves over half a million people with 4,500 staff and volunteers, on a journey out of special measures, Gate One led the development of a quality strategy to help the Trust drive the highest quality of patient care through cultural change.
We developed the operating model for leading and developing quality across the organisation by establishing cross-organisational engagement forums with front-line staff. This involved an extensive engagement exercise to co-design a vision and strategy for quality.
Our support has helped the Trust to establish a new culture and the supporting capabilities that will help them on the next step of their journey towards excellence.
Pathway design and delivery (in partnership with an Acute NHS Trust):
Our client had been awarded a place on the National Diabetes Prevention Programme Framework, and asked Gate One to support them to design, integrate and mobilise a new Tier 0 pathway for diabetes prevention across three STP areas.
Following the award of the local health economy contracts, our client was required to take their first referral within 14 weeks. Gate One developed a mobilisation and transition Project Initiation Document (PID), which was enacted on day 1 of us starting. Over the 70-operational day deployment window, we mobilised corporate departments around a central vision, recruited a full-time team of 20 FTE, and rolled out to plan for a population area of over 7 million people. The service met all regulatory and compliance requirements by the commissioners.
