In-Form Solutions have provided senior finance support and mentoring to senior managers, clinicians and to the Finance Department of the Gibraltar Health Authority (GHA).
As part of this support, In-Form Solutions examined the cost base of the GHA and presented the Executive Team with opportunities to make changes to the workforce, skills mix and to the overtime roster. Our team then modelled the budget for 2020/21 ready for presentation to Parliament. The model was essentially Excel-based modelling of pay costs, employers’ costs, and multiple enhancements to pay for the multidisciplinary workforce. This included establishing the Capital Programme for 2020/21.
Our team has also acted as the mentors to the senior finance team and developed a programme of departmental and personal development for that team, including an away day using the “Six Hats Thinking” technique. In parallel to this, In-Form Solutions supported the development of an integrated operational plan, cost improvement programme, a new financial ledger system and a roadmap for developing a Patient Level Information Costing System.
