Housden Group Healthcare Consultancy


Building Profitable Businesses


Housden Group will work with you to:

  • Work through the options and practical steps for the setting up of a business or new service: ensuring clear structures, objections and working practices are in place – focused on delivery of commercial success.
  • Drive top line organic sales growth with existing customers to improve cash flow and asset utilisation, developing new products and opening up new markets.
  • Concentrate focus on bottom line returns through benchmarking and product or service line reviews.

For Independent Sector clients we have already:

  • When operations director, delivered EBIT growth of 134% on 12% increase in turnover for InHealth’s cardiac business in year ended September 2007.
  • Carried out review of future commercial potential for Capio Hospitals (now Ramsay Healthcare) Independent Sector Treatment Centres beyond completion of present Department of Health 5 year contracts.
  • And when at Bupa Hospitals (now Spire Healthcare) Philip successfully delivered rapid profit growth at 4 private hospitals exceeding all annual financial targets each year for over 5 years.  This included securing the  medium term commercial future of the 85 bed Southampton Hospital by extending the product range through the introduction of new added value complex surgery programmes, including bariatric and liver surgery programmes, and achievement of long-term NHS contracts enabling expansion of cardiac surgery.

For Consultant and GP Groups we have already:

  • Supported the successful launch of Cowplain Healthspace South, a new GP Health Centre opened in 2011 in Waterlooville, Hampshire. Healthspace South offers 1000m2 of space for rent to healthcare providers in a fast growing market and is the first such facility provided by Best Practice South, a joint venture between Ashley House and local GPs.
  • Supported the commercial growth of several speciality 'chambers', including their commercial strategy and forward business plans, and in particular Southern ENT, LLP and OrthoSportsCentre Ltd.
