Following an earlier review of its Corporate Services, the Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust was keen to explore the possibilities for cost improvement with regard to a number of its Clinical services, as part of a wider programme to balance the Trust’s books. Consequently, the Trust sought some independent benchmarking analysis that would help to inform the Trust as to how its services compared with those of other similar organisations from a financial perspective.
GK Transformation were engaged by a split-site acute trust to review their progress towards compliance with the comprehensive NHS Premises Assurance Model (PAM). This model brings together for the first time a wide range of services and disciplines across estates & facilities and examines them at both an operational and strategic level.

Gk Transformation were commissioned by London North West Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to assist with the performance management of their outsourced bed maintenance contract. The Trust had tried, in isolation; to make the contractor recognise the impact their lack of responsiveness and underperformance was having on the day-to-day operation of the Trust, with bed shortages becoming the norm.
Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust provides healthcare services to around 370,000 people from Colchester and the surrounding area of north east Essex. In addition, the Trust provides radiotherapy and oncology services to a wider population of about 670,000 people across north and mid-Essex.
GK Transformation were commissioned by University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) to undertake a trust wide review of their portering service provision. The service, which had been the subject of many incremental changes over the years, needed to be aligned with the current and future needs of the Trust, reflecting the coming together of a number of specialist hospitals with the Bristol Royal Infirmary to create a unified organisation.
GK Transformation provided support to the Trust over a two year period, firstly developing and then implementing a major cost improvement programme.
