As a commercial lobbyist, the highly regulated industries tend to be the lifeblood of advisory consultancies given the sheer number of policy issues at play.
The NHS has an annual budget of £95bn which it must spend effectively by obtaining the best value, clinical outcomes and measurable improvements for patients. The funding challenges and new architecture of the NHS pose a significant challenge to organisations working in or wishing to enter the healthcare space who require advisers with a clear understanding of how this complex organisational puzzle fits together and operates.
Therefore a healthy market exists for advisory firms who can use their knowledge and experience to help their clients anticipate and mitigate risks, while capitalising on opportunities to present a coherent, innovative and cost saving business case which is vital in order to gain cut-through in such a politically charged environment.
As a national institution the NHS commands fierce public and political loyalty which often gets in the way of good policy making. It has therefore been especially rewarding to have been able to put my team’s collective experience and knowledge of health policy to use in helping introduce new technological advancements and innovative ways of working into a service that is often slow to adapt.
It is personally satisfying to know that as a result of our work, patients at risk of heart disease and stroke are picked up earlier through the over-40 GP ‘health checks’ following our Campaign for Vascular Assessment. Having secured cross party support for mandating (VTE) blood clot risk assessments for hospitalised patients, using new commissioning incentives and by embedding quality standards in the NHS Litigation Authority Risk Management Standards and the new Care Quality Commission (CQC) Hospital Inspection regime, risk assessment for VTE now happens for over 95% of patients, which we are confident is saving thousands of lives each year.
