An experienced team for challenging times
The radical changes in society, the economy, technology and the structural reform of the NHS mean that many healthcare organisations are at a crossroads in their development. They face critical decisions in order to be sustainable, such as whether to invest or divest; or to merge, partner or stand-alone. These decisions are in addition to the day-to-day pressures on services and demands from patients, regulators and clinical standards bodies.
BDO’s Healthcare Advisory team work with work with providers in tertiary, secondary, community, primary and private healthcare settings across acute, mental and community care. We also work with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and commissioning support suppliers providing innovative and exciting solutions to help NHS and private sector organisations improve service delivery, patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. We are proud to be working with a number of Vanguard sites, helping to deliver a sustainable model of care for the future.
We have developed approaches, tools and techniques that can be used to assess strategic decisions in a systematic and structured way, whilst taking account of the local needs and many local (often conflicting) views. Our experience tells us that staff need to own changes in order for them to succeed. Whilst we bring a wealth of ideas from our work with NHS Trusts of all types, by working closely with our clients’ clinical and non-clinical staff, we ensure that our their organisations are the ones who own and implement the most innovative and effective ideas which will work in their locality.
In addition to delivering system transformation consultancy and strategy, performance improvement and governance advice, BDO acts as a specialist tax and medical accountant and provides business advisory services to a portfolio which includes GPs and practice managers, dentists, consultants, vets, healthcare social enterprises, GP federations and provider companies, CCGs and other health organisations, demonstrating our commitment to this sector. The members of our national Healthcare Business Support team providing these services are experts in tax and medical accounting.
Our core Healthcare Advisory team includes energetic and experienced professionals with NHS backgrounds in operational management, finance, procurement, nursing, acute medicine and surgery, HR and general practice.
