Rubicon is ten years old and is as busy as ever.  In recent months we have:

  • Continued to work in the Dorset system helping Dorset Healthcare NHSFT with its HIP2 capital investment business cases.
  • Won new work with Dorset County Hospital also linked to HIP2 funding.
  • Commenced work with colleagues from other SMEs to develop a health and care hub in Ely.
  • Completed the outline business case for two new mental health units in Surrey and subsequently worked with our client to bid for central funds for the first scheme.
  • Won a new piece of work helping Worcestershire Health & Care to develop their estate strategy – almost ten years since the first time we worked with this trust.
  • Continued to review ETTF bids for NHSE.
  • Completed our work with the Adult Cerebral Palsy Hub.
  • Started a project for overseas investors looking at opportunities in England.
  • Continued to support colleagues in SCWCSU by placing interim staff.

 

Today marks Rubicon’s tenth anniversary. Over the last ten years the company has delivered over 200 projects for more than 50 clients predominantly in the NHS, but also private health providers and charities. The company works through an associate network and partnerships with other SMEs; currently we have an associate network of 53 compared to 12 when Rubicon was launched. Rubicon continues to be busy and is currently engaged as lead or a sub-contractor, on nine projects for clients ranging from NHSE, a charity and four NHS providers.
