Our transformational journey
In August 2018 a strategic partnership with Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation partnership was announced to explore new opportunities for the digital transformation of a range of back and middle office functions.
Building on the success of an existing partnership for the delivery of finance and procurement services, we're working together to consider how innovative technologies can be used to develop new modern ways of working across the Trust's corporate and admin services.
The aim is to help Royal Papworth Hospital develop truly best-in-class back office services, ensuring resources are used in the most effective way and ultimately enhancing patient care.
Following this project, new shared services models will be developed to benefit the wider NHS, helping to support our efforts to futureproof the entire health service back office.
The partnership also benefits via input from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS Improvement (NHSI), with representation from both on the programme steering group to ensure it is aligned to the national agenda.
"Helping the NHS to save money and enhance quality so that the NHS can improve health, innovate to save lives and deliver better outcomes with care and compassion"
We are on course to achieve £1 billion of cost savings to the NHS by 2020. To date the organisation has delivered over £400 million in savings to the NHS.
