Every year we
Since 2005 we have been providing business solutions for the NHS. We have developed a shared services business mode that enables us to achieve huge economies of scale, but we also bring innovation and best practice solutions to improve services for the NHS.
We get results: in June 2013 we presented a cheque for £2.4m to the NHS. This continues the series of ‘royalty payments’ earmarked for distribution amongst our clients over the next few years. The value NHS SBS delivers to the NHS extends beyond purely cashable savings to embrace operational excellence and business efficiency in support of our clients’ own agendas for:
At NHS SBS we employ 1,900 people, many of whom have considerable NHS experience. Our clients benefit from that deep knowledge of the NHS combined with commercial expertise and best practice solutions. Our aim is to improve service quality and provide enhanced management information, and we are committed to service excellence – our people put our clients first in everything that they do.
A unique Joint Venture
NHS SBS is a unique joint venture between the Department of Health and Steria. Our purpose is to deliver savings of £224 million for the NHS by 2015, and we are on target to achieve these savings. We provide on average cost improvements of around 30% for our clients, as well as providing added value solutions.
Our clients benefit from Steria’s commercial capability and innovation. Steria is a global IT company, one of the Top 10 in Europe for business process transformation, providing services for a range of public and private sector organisations such as BBC, Boots, Lloyds Banking Group and Veolia.
The NHS SBS Club
Since 2009 our clients have shared in our success and received additional funds back. In addition to realising cost and efficiency savings, being part of the NHS SBS club means they also share part of our surplus. In the last four years we have given back more than £6.2 million to our NHS clients – a true partnership, real added value.
Let us work with you – together we can help you meet the challenges of improving quality and healthcare outcomes while achieving your challenging cost saving targets.
