TESTIMONIALS


‘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.’


University Hospital Galway, Tony Canavan COO (Theatres)


‘In July of this year it will be two years from when the initial phase of the change project was completed. My initial impression was of a project that had gone very well and thankfully the subsequent two years have confirmed this. Changes implemented in the first 6 months have led to long-term changes in data capture, in how staff relate to and work with each other, and in how and when patients are admitted to our service. Objective output measures such as bed occupancy and the number of admissions have shown clear improvements.’


Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services Dublin, Stephen Higgins MB MRCPI Consultant in Palliative Medicine & Medical Director of Palliative Services (Inpatient Services)

‘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.’


Waverley Care Edinburgh, Grant Sugden, Chief Executive Officer (Residential and Outreach Services)



‘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.’

Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Tony Campbell, Chief  Operating Officer (Outpatients, Theatres and Imaging)

'125 days without an Out Of Area placement. Contacts per day per CMHT clinician increased by an average of 38%. Reducing CMHT agency costs. Cumulative Out Of Area savings throughout the duration of the programme equated to £537k, which means that the project paid for itself around 2.2 times before it ended on this metric alone - an outcome that we had not envisaged being able to achieve so rapidly.'

Bradford Care NHS Trust, Simon Large, Chief Executive Officer (Bed Management and Community Mental Health)

‘The hospital is now in position to assess the current capacity surplus or deficit in each specialty versus the demand using factual information. With the use of the Capacity Planner the management team can review the workload of all consultants against the national targets and take appropriate actions to meet the demand and the patient treatment goals.’


‘All available sessions are now utilised and the management team all take part in the decision making process with regards to staff management, waiting list management and taking actions on identified problems.’


Cork University Group of Hospitals, Dr. Ken Walsh. Perioperative Clinical Director (Theatres)


‘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.’


Halton Borough Council, Sue Wallace-Bonner, Director of Adult Services (Complex Care and Initial Assessment)
