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.

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.

Following successful delivery of QIPP Phase 3 assurance reviews, we have now started work on several QIPP Phase 4 projects.  These include working with the Bath & North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire health and care system to develop new services and processes designed to reduce the amount of time patients stay in acute hospitals.

Comments Off on Oxfordshire pre-consultation business case

Rubicon has been appointed by Oxfordshire CCG to support local commissioners and providers to develop a pre-consultation business case which will bring together service model changes signalled in the county’s STP submission. The work will run over the summer to the end of August with Rubicon’s team of three being responsible for project management, authoring the document and financial modelling.

Rubicon has successfully delivered four STP modelling projects in time for the 30th June deadline. Our associates worked alongside staff from the South, Central and West CSU to provide activity and financial modelling support to clients in the Buckinghamshire, Frimley, Bristol/ S Gloucestershire & N Somerset, and Oxfordshire systems. We are now in discussion with each client about ongoing support as their plans develop over the summer.
