Mark Chapman, CEO at Alliance Medical Group explains how he used the Practicus Community to expand diagnostic collaboration with the NHS.


Healthcare providers often depend on agency staff, particularly clinical, to run their business. A short-term fix to a capacity challenge has turned into a dangerous over-reliance that threatens patients and profitability. 

We brought together healthcare leaders to discuss and debate sustainable workforce practices and ideas.


Steve West, Operations Manager for an NHS Emergency Services team explains how Practicus provided necessary programme management expertise to fulfil transformation ambitions and plans.

Roundtable-Integrated Care

We invited CEOs, Accountable Officers and Programme Directors in from NHS organisations in the North West to focus on the challenges of delivering sustainable integrated care. The event was led by Sir David Dalton, who also shared his own thoughts on how key challenges can be overcome.
