TESTIMONIALS

‘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)

'For the first time the managers and staff in the Bamburgh Clinic have the ability to demonstrate the amount of 'meaningful' activity delivered to patients in a clear and dynamic way.'
'What made the real impact on the service was the staff's ownership and engagement achieved through the 'Meridian' way of working.'

Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, Gary O'Hare, Executive Director of Nursing and Operations

‘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)


‘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.’


Care Inspectorate (following a programme with Waverley Care Edinburgh)


‘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)


‘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.’


St. Vincent’s University Hospital Dublin, Kilian McGrane, Chief Operating Officer (Theatres)


‘Meridian helped us implement the tools as well as the behaviour change during the project. One of the most important achievements of the project was the implementation of a long overdue theatre module.’


Royal Victoria Eye and Ear Hospital, Dublin, Danny Dunne, Chief Executive Officer (Theatres and Outpatients)
