The Rotherham NHS FT, Community Services and Careplus Board approved strategic direction 1. Diversification – to spread and reduce the risk of operating within a single market which is in decline (Acute Hospital Sector) 2. Harnessing the benefits of scale a. Economies of scale e.g. shared services/back office functions, reduced corporate overheads, lower supplies costs, etc. b. Increased borrowing capacity c. Ability to recruit the highest calibre of managers d. Influencing National Policy e. Greater influence when working with the Private Sector 3. Innovation a. Building flexibility in our capacity to respond to the way future services will be delivered; b. Developing multi-functional expertise across our portfolio of services that can be deployed wherever there is a need; c. Identifying, developing capability and meeting emerging gaps in the market for new forms of service; 4. Altruism a. We are passionate about the NHS and believe we have much to contribute to its successful transformation into a world class health system b. We believe that the strategy of supporting patients in managing themselves is correct, but requires a different approach and new models of service; we want to influence that new approach and provide those new models c. We are concerned that Community Services will taken over by Hospitals eager to asset strip them to resolve their own financial challenges/deficiencies, which we fundamentally oppose d. We believe that we can beat the Private Sector at what they do, and do not want to see tax payers money going to private sector shareholders without effective NHS competition Our 10 areas of business interest Operating Acute Hospitals – acquisitions and takeovers Operating Community Provider Services Developing and operating “Alternate Levels of Care” (reinventing the Community Hospital)* 4.
