Our team provides a high level of customer service and has delivered quality, end-to-end products within tight timescales. The quality of our service speaks for itself, with many returning customers and we work with a wide range of others from across the healthcare system – Primary Care, ICBs, Provider Collaborative and NHSE.
- Individual Funding Requests (IFR)
Our IFR team manages the Individual Funding Requests made for procedures of limited clinical value and cover the North East and North Cumbria, as well as North Yorkshire and Humber. Through use of the Value Based Policy, we administer any IFR requests, working with a vast array of clinical decision makers to manage the panels and process the outcomes.
- Business Automation
Our BA team has been fundamental in developing a number of systems that support us in delivery of our core business functions, as well as supporting our customers with their automation needs. These include for example the Check+, Waiting Well and Contract Management systems. We also support other teams across NECS to streamline processes, automating manual processes and allowing for increased efficiencies, reduced cost and improved quality.
- National Elective Restoration programme
Our Elective Recovery team plays a vital role in supporting the delivery plan for tackling the substantial waiting list, as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We support ambitious plans to bring down long waits for elective backlog by supporting specific programmes, nationally, regionally and at place. Programmes include the Elective Recovery Programme, My Planned Care and Getting Set for Surgery (Waiting Well) Programme.
