Shortly before Christmas, Rubicon completed its our first piece of work for Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust following an introduction from a former colleague.  The project was a short business case for new car parking at the trust’s two main hospital sites, necessitated by ongoing activity growth at the Maidstone and Pembury sites.  Both investments were approved by the trust board in December and will be delivered by the end of March 2020.

We have recently completed a refresh of this trust’s estate strategy working alongside WT Partnership.  This recently merged large acute trust needed a new estate strategy to reflect its emerging clinical and corporate strategy which in turn, reflects opportunities arising from the merger.  We had previously worked on phase one of the strategy in 2018 and delivered phase two over summer 2019.

Working with our partners from Tricordant, we are about to start developing several business cases for West Kent CCG.  The business case will build upon the work we did in 2018 and will set out plans to deliver between three and five community hubs across the west of Kent.

Comments Off on South Kent CCG – New Romney hub

We have been appointed, via the Crown Commercial Services management consulting framework, to work with the South Kent CCG, local GPs, Kent Community Health, NHS Property Services and local town, district and county councils on plans to build a new community health and wellbeing hub in New Romney.  The hub will bring together a wide range of statutory sector commissioned services into new purpose built facilities.  This will enable the better integration of health and care services, as well as assisting in making out of hospital and primary care services in the area, more resilient.

Rubicon and Medical Architecture have been working with Dorset HealthCare to explore a one-off opportunity to bring mental health and community health services together on a single site to serve the west of the county.  Our work led to the development of a strategic outline case which has been presented to the trust’s board for approval.
