Effective infrastructure planning has never been so important, as the health system responds to the COVID-19 pandemic and delivers the vaccination programme.
Infrastructure planning is also fundamental to the move towards building strong and effective Integrated Care Systems and acts as a key enabler to delivering high-quality patient care.
From well-designed, efficiently used facilities to the installation of the right equipment and technology, effective infrastructure planning can support the system in adopting new ways of working, saving money and enabling effective change to how services are delivered.
Benefits of Infrastructure Planning
Fit for purpose estate
Well utilized, in the right place and at the right cost.
A robust workforce
Providing modern healthcare services to a growing, ageing population.
Technology and digital infrastructure to support new ways of working.
Supporting Your Priorities
The development of Integrated Care Systems over the last two years has looked to enhance the partnerships between
NHS organisations, local councils and others in order to allow organisations to work together and coordinate services more closely, to make real, practical improvements to people’s lives.
Effective Infrastructure Planning can enhance these partnerships, and support your system priorities by:
Boosting ‘out-of-hospital’ care and reducing pressure on emergency hospital services through coordination of community infrastructure and service re-design.
Facilitating an increase in digital pathways for primary and outpatient services through investment in digital infrastructure.
Support a focus on population health & local partnerships with borough-funded services, as part of the ICS model through a better understanding of local demographics and services.
Accelerate infrastructure project delivery through an partnership approach that builds on local capacity and capability.
Facilitate integration through development of
multi-disciplinary hubs and coordinated provision of care centred around residents’ needs.
Support access to funding through an informed investment planning process and alignment to national funding opportunities.
Infrastructure Planning: Case Study
We have the skills, grounded experience, and capabilities to support ICS estates leads with updating and developing estates strategies.
We have developed a systematic approach to infrastructure planning and our work, in areas such as North Central London CCG & STP, has enabled us to better understand our client’s infrastructure baseline, define their needs and develop a clear roadmap of investment to maintain and renew infrastructure in order to respond to changes in the environment and in care.
