Christmas New Year Message

We hope that you all have had a lovely relaxing Christmas and are now refreshed as we embark on a challenging 2018.

2017 for In-Form Solutions has been a very successful year. We have expanded by increasing our portfolio of clients throughout the NHS and overseas, have been accredited on a number of Framework Agreements in the UK and Ireland as well as gaining Cyber Essentials accreditation. This helps to reassure our partners and provides us with new exciting opportunities. We believe that we are successful through a very simple formula; providing innovative thinking, reliability, flexibility and value.  This was demonstrated by our teams completing a number of NHS England QIPP Reviews on time, below budget and all over achieving the QIPP targets set. NHS partners have expressed their continual confidence in us by making new referrals and giving us new opportunities. We also continue to support Gibraltar Health Authority, the States of Jersey as well as our valued partners in Ireland.   

We very much welcome two new members to our team, Andrew Hartshorn and Nick Gerrard who are now well established and are both supporting a number of NHS organisations in England and Wales by undertaking some very high profile assignments.

2018 will be another challenging year as STP’s and ACS establish and expand as they develop integrated health systems within their communities. We are already involved with their development, but we believe we are well placed to support them as we have considerable experience of integrated health systems in Wales, Ireland, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar.

We would like to thank our staff for their hard work and commitment, but also to our partners for their continual support and we wish you all a very happy and healthy 2018.
