Helping our clients ensure the right resources,
in the right place, at the right time.
Meridian works with Healthcare Providers achieving significant, sustainable advances in performance whilst simultaneously achieving real savings.
Our service, supporting your management, is patient-focussed; freeing up frontline resources to spend increased quality time with patients, handle increased patient numbers and reduce waiting times, whilst providing exceptional value for money.
Meridian offers a significant return on investment (ROI) on all of our projects and also offer a guarantee to protect our clients from any in-year exposure.
‘Subsequent to the theatre review exercise undertaken, the organisation is better equipped to maintain our waiting times, in parallel to improving our cost base and ensuring our new recruitment plans meet patient care standards and demand.’
‘The work has allowed the trust to implement a new slot template for MR and CT resulting in an increased revenue earn of £871,438 annualised as a minimum with an increased appointment slot capacity based on a 10% unable to scan rate inclusive.’
‘Our Trust will successfully increase our revenue potential, which will directly contribute to our CIP savings, whilst maintaining the quality of patient care delivered. The enthusiasm and drive demonstrated by Meridian staff throughout the process enabled the project to run with vigour and pace from beginning to end.’
‘The Meridian team were very well received and engaged the staff from project start to end which enabled us to achieve £321,729 savings in Imaging, £302,423 savings in Outpatients and £232,975 savings in Theatres.’
‘Meridian were able to work collaboratively to focus their time and efforts on the areas pin-pointed not only by themselves and other external bodies such as the model hospital, but also by the areas of need described by Chesterfield staff.’
‘They have given us a more transparent, systematic approach to managing the performance of our people by utilising a series of quality reports which has enabled us to ensure that all staff are meeting their Service User contact targets, Service User Expected Discharge Dates and the demand generated from each Service Users’ care plan.’
‘The Service has just had an inspection from the Care Inspectorate who provided us with our best review on record and specifically mentioned the hard work and improvement Meridian have made.’
‘It was necessary for Management to regain ownership of what happens in theatre. That has been achieved. It was necessary for us to put a structure on key decisions around the allocation of Theatre resources. That has been achieved. It was necessary for us to put structures in place so that we can ensure that the Group's priorities are delivered on in theatre. We are a long way down that road.’
‘The service had worked with a management consultancy firm over a number of months. The impact was said to be 'huge' and positive. For example: streamlined work practices and a reduction in meetings meant more time to spend with service users; better planning for admissions and new reporting systems meant better uptake of spaces.’
‘The new staff rota system included a designated shift coordinator who would oversee tasks. Communication systems had improved and provided staff with all the information they needed to work in a safe and efficient way. Staff said they were looking forward to new opportunities, such as regularly facilitating groups.’
‘Working with Meridian has been a very positive experience for the organisation and we are already looking at further opportunities for improvement within the organisation. We would thus highly recommend them to other organisations to achieve real cost and efficiency results.’
