Health and Social Care services

Our key services help our health and care clients confidently address the challenges they face. We always tailor our work to meet your needs. Nonetheless, our experience is that you will need one or more of three main services; Strategy and Planning, Performance improvement and System Transformation.

Strategy and Planning

“BDO provided valuable insight and opportunities for practices to improve sustainability through individual and collective working. We would welcome the opportunity to work with the BDO team again.”

Chief Executive, Improving Health Limited

Our extensive experience and expertise enables us to assess strategic options in a systematic and structured way. We incorporate organisational development into all our strategy and planning projects. We find that by developing your board’s skills and by fostering collaboration across leadership teams, we drive behavioral change in management and clinical teams. Our strategy and planning services include;

  • Business case development
  • Organisational strategy
  • Programme planning/management
  • Economic analysis
  • Activity, capacity, finance and workforce modelling
  • Risk management
  • Change governance
  • Leadership and Board development
  • Primary Care development

Our approach aligns strategy, people and processes to achieve your goals. We work closely with our Infrastructure Advisory and Medical Services teams to provide you with the expert advice you need. 

Sustainable Transformation Plans and System Transformation

“BDO worked with Stockport Together as a Vanguard site, from June 2016 to February 2017 in developing an Outcomes Framework for an MCP capitated contract.’

‘BDO were highly valuable to this work as an integrator of commissioners, providers and key stakeholders working alongside Outcomes Based Healthcare, a specialist consultancy. The first phase of this work was highly complex and new and BDO’s intellectual input and programme management was invaluable to its success.” 

Associate Director of Commissioning, Stockport CCG

Transformation is about people and outcomes rather than activity and assets. We are recognised by NHS England as an innovative supplier in transformation and change support. Health and care organisations can easily access our services through the Health Systems Support Framework.

We are at the forefront of many health and social care integration initiatives including working with leading vanguard sites and STPs, to support development of Integrated Care Systems (ICS) and approaches to Population Health Management.
Our system transformation offerings include;

  • Population health management
  • Outcomes based commissioning
  • System alignment
  • Provider integration
  • Strategic commissioning
  • Service delivery model evaluation
  • System costing

Performance Improvement

“BDO’s experienced specialist healthcare team has proved responsive to the changing needs of this challenging and complex project. They have added further expert resource as required and linked well with my team and other technical advisors. They have a positive attitude and approach and this coupled with an extremely high level of energy and effort has made a substantial impact”.

Director of Finance, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Foundation Trust 

Our approach to performance improvement takes a system perspective. We focus on changing behaviour and outcomes to drive real, sustained improvement. Whether working with providers or commissioners, we challenge artificial boundaries existing between services and organisations. We will encourage system-level solutions beyond your organisation and create the capacity to focus on long-term change. 
Our services include;

  • Commissioner and provider grip & control improvement
  • Provider CIP review, planning and delivery 
  • QIPP 
  • Activity and capacity planning
  • Benchmarking

Our subscription service

Our clients often worry that change programmes, particularly those which involve significant external support, are not sustained once a project is over and there is a return to business as usual. The purpose of the subscription service is to provide ongoing independent challenge and support to organisations in sustaining and improving existing services.

We will help you embed newly implemented changes. Through light touch but sustained review, with staff development and governance/reporting support, we provide leadership with assurance that processes and controls continue to operate effectively. We will also provide recommendations for intervention.

The subscription service enables clients to build their own review by selecting a ‘work package’, ‘operational unit’ and ‘focus area’. Our subscription model brochure provides more detailed information.
