We’re experts at doing practical work to answer the questions that matter. Our work on Virtual Wards is testament to this approach.

Virtual Wards, which help patients manage their health and care at home, are expanding. As the leading Virtual Wards consultancy, we’ve been working with partners including Integrated Care Boards to help manage Virtual Ward implementation since their inception.

We’ve also been answering key questions about the effectiveness of Virtual Wards, by delivering sector-leading evaluations at both regional and local levels to assess the impact of Virtual Wards on activity, expenditure, and quality.

Virtual Ward delivery is complex, there is a wide spectrum of options available and there are complexities and unknowns to overcome, but with the right methodologies in place, we have seen that Virtual Wards work to deliver better outcomes for patients, carers and clinicians.

We can work with you to assess the impact of Virtual Wards in your region, locality or place. We can help you understand where the challenges and opportunities are, so you can further your roll-out of Virtual Wards and deliver the best care to your patients.

    One of the few projects that I have witnessed in a long time that has improved patient and carer experience, promoted true multi disciplinary working and has reduced length of stay in the hospital we need to roll this out across every single ward.
