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.

Rubicon has been appointed to work with a large community and mental health provider to develop a suite of demand and capacity models for the trust’s services including specialist community teams, community hospital beds and community-based mental health teams.  The work will also involve benchmarking the trust’s services to inform future efficiency plans.

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.

Rubicon is providing support to colleagues in the Somerset STP to develop new models of care to facilitate more people being treated out of acute hospital settings.  The project is focused on understanding how admission rates and length of stay can be reduce so the system is less reliant upon the two local acute hospitals, and will inform the pattern of provision of community, primary care and social care services in neighbourhood teams and Somerset’s community hospitals.
