Rubicon is a specialist healthcare and social care consultancy that provides management consultancy services to NHS and independent sector health and social care commissioners and providers. Rubicon is the strategic partner of South Central and West Commissioning Support Unit.
Our purpose is to help our clients solve their most difficult problems and in doing so help to transform health and social care across the UK. Our approach to consulting is unique – we don’t employ staff and instead construct custom made teams for each assignment drawing from our large pool of associates. By taking this approach we can provide you with director level consultants at the same price as a junior from the traditional consultancies.
We were established in 2010 and have delivered more than 130 consultancy projects to almost 60 clients. By focusing on the industry we know best we can ensure that the support we provide represents excellent value for all of our clients. Our support is always tailored to the unique needs of each client and each project, and is always delivered by senior consultants with extensive and directly relevant industry and consulting experience – we do not employ junior staff. This means that we can combine our industry experience and learning from other projects with insights generated from our work on each project to provide each client with an evidence-based solution to their problem. Our tailored approach also means that there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Rubicon consultancy project – our projects have varied from a few days to over a year in duration.
Rubicon’s approach is based on two values that run through everything we do. Firstly a commitment to high quality – our customers have a right to expect excellence from us and we know that our reputation is only as good as our last job. Secondly outstanding value for money – our approach to staffing projects and our size means we can deliver projects at a significantly lower cost than the larger consultancy firms.
The rest of this website provides you with more detail about: what we do (our healthcare consulting ‘offer’); our experience, including a large number of case studies; news about our recent and ongoing projects; our team; how you can procure Rubicon (commercial arrangements); and how to contact us. We hope this provides the information you need but we survive on our reputation alone, so would encourage you to speak to any of the clients here listed to hear from them about what it is like to work with us and the value we bring.
