Our Experience

Drawing on over 25 years experience consulting to the NHS, we specialise in health and social care benchmarking, data and intelligence.


We utilise our extensive experience across all sectors of the healthcare economy to support our clients to become great commissioners and excellent providers of NHS healthcare.

We are the official support consultants to the NHS Benchmarking Network and support over 10,000 NHS professionals with strategic decision making and service improvement. The NHS Benchmarking Network is the world's largest healthcare benchmarking and good practices forum. We are delighted to be the official support team and value the relationship with members.

Through our work with the Network, we deliver the National Audit of Care at the End of Life (NACEL), the National Audit of Intermediate Care and the NHS Improvement audit of Learning Disability Quality Standards. Our success is based on producing user friendly, timely audit outputs to support participants with quality improvements.

Our key skills are in working with NHS organisations at the national, regional and local level to help them meet the challenges and opportunities of the NHS Long Term Plan. We bring unique comparative data and insight to support policy review, resource allocation and identification of efficiencies.

Since establishment, all our clients have commissioned repeat or additional work from our team, which evidences the high level of value and level of service provided by our consultants.
