East Suffolk & North Essex FT

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.


Mental health strategic outline programme

Rubicon has been appointed by Barnet, Enfield and Haringey to work with the trust to develop a business case for a programme of investment across the trust’s inpatient estate.  The work will complete in January 2020.


West Kent

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.


Derbyshire Healthcare

Rubicon has started work with Derbyshire Healthcare NHSFT to develop the trust’s strategy for its estate for the next 5 to 10 years.  The trust provides mental health services from over 60 sites across Derbyshire and has appointed Rubicon based on our extensive experience of developing estate strategies for mental health and community based providers.


ETTF bids and reviews

Rubicon is working with partners from WT Partnership to review EETF funding bids on behalf of NHSE and is separately working on ETTF bids for a GP in Hastings and for Greenwich CCG.


Estate strategy – phase 2

Working alongside colleagues from WT Partnership, Rubicon will be commencing phase two of our work on East Suffolk and North Essex’s estates strategy, in June.


Rubicon appointed to develop demand and capacity model

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.
