Cut costs by reducing waste

Leveraging supply buying power saved more than £500,000.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

London, the United Kingdom

This major teaching hospital and cardiac surgery centre of excellence was facing growing demand, putting a strain on limited resources. Through our seven-year partnership, we collaborated on a tailored solution that included bringing the latest cardiac technologies into their Cath Lab, optimising their non-clinical operations, and providing ongoing training and support.


The impact

Two healthcare professionals consulting in a hospital





£1.5 million in cardiology program efficiency savings





Significantly improved on-time starts and lab uptimes






Reduced waste and increased procurement savings






Greater staff satisfaction and retention, and more





I think one of the key benefits of having a commercial partner is thinking about new options. If we wonder about how to bring more technology to the community, how to be better at our marketing, how to engage better with patients, we have a partner here on-site for the long term that we can engage with, and this partner has a different skillset than our own.

-Mr. Graham Lomax, Divisional Director of Operations, Scheduled Care
