Housden Group Healthcare Consultancy


Unlocking Strategic Solutions


Housden Group will work with you to:

  • Make sense of the complex choices in front of you.
  • Spot market opportunities and see the ‘fit’ with what you do already.
  • Benchmark performance to challenge what you do now.

For Independent Sector clients we have already:

  • Strategically reviewed InHealth’s cardiac business, examining its place in the changing market and the options for investment or divestment. The outcome of the review was a renewed focus on the achieving growth and this led to the provision of a detailed investment plan and a brand review.
  • Conducted short sharp commercial review of the performance of an independent hospital in Ireland for the funding bank and other investors.
  • Provided a search and support service for independent sector companies looking to enter the market through merger and/or acquisition.

For NHS clients we have already:

  • Delivered business case for new private patient ward for Poole Hospital: the Cornelia Suite opened in September 2012, now achieving immediate 30% increase year on year in private patient revenues.
  • Produced Trust Board business case for investment in private patient services for University Hospital Southampton; worked with management and clinicians to implement agreed action plans.
  • Implemented a commercial strategy review for private patient service provision at St Mary’s NHS Hospital, Newport, Isle of Wight in response to competitor closure. This resulted in immediate and sustained improvements in turnover and profitability. The second project phase was the requirement to design a cost effective solution to provide additional capacity to meet the growing demand. A business case for expansion through the addition of an ambulatory care unit and improved outpatient rooms was worked up, received PCT Board approval and opened within 6 months.
  • Benchmarked consultant radiology fees across UK private hospitals for a London Foundation Trust Private Patient Unit, demonstrating the potential for significant cost reductions for the Trust.
  • Delivered an in-depth opportunity assessment for Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust of the Trust’s private patient business.  This focused on enabling the Trust to create additional bed capacity through improved utilisation and also to move forward with growth in revenue streams from diagnostic imaging.

And when at Bupa Hospitals, Philip led the team that overhauled investment priorities and delivered improved return on capital employed for the rolling £30M a year capex budget for the hospitals network.
