Essentia helps organisations to develop ambitious and effective strategic plans that meet the challenge of delivering more services with less money.
Our approach to business planning focuses on improvements in productivity and efficiency across the whole estate.
A strategic estate plan addresses a number of questions – what services will we offer, where will they be located, how will they be accessed, what buildings and space do we need, how should technology be used, what impact will we have on the environment?
The traditional approach of tackling each question in isolation can lead to inefficiencies, overlaps and/or gaps, and missed opportunities. This in turn leads to services being cut when costs need to be reduced.
At Essentia, we prefer redesign to cost-cutting and we like to challenge conventional thinking. Our integrated approach to the estate strategy ensures that all components – clinical strategy, healthcare planning, property, capital development, technology and sustainability – work together to deliver the best service and value.
