A leading health trust, part of the UK's National Health Service (NHS), offers an opportunity to collaborate with public or private sector healthcare organisations in other countries through a joint venture or services agreement. The aim of the joint venture or agreement would be to help and support the partner, to remodel its existing corporate and clinical governance framework, in order to improve patient safety and experience.
The UK's National Health Service (NHS) was voted the Best Healthcare Service in the World in 2014, in a report published by the Commonwealth Fund. It was voted best among developed oountries including the US and European countries, not only for the quality of its services but also for its cost efficiency. It achieved this accolade because of its unique set of policies and protocols, along with its Corporate and Clinical Governance Framework.
One of the trusts which make up the NHS now wishes to offer to share its experience and skills with partner organisations in other countries through either a joint venture or services agreement. The trust would provide partners with one-to-one advice, on-going support and on-site training in the UK, to help them set up an NHS-style corporate and clinical governance framework.
Such a framework can be implemented at organisational or country level and is known to improve the quality of care, by improving overall patient safety and experience, as well as delivering cost efficiency savings.
The partnership would provide training opportunities for corporate and clinical staff, allowing them to experience the governance mechanism in practice in the UK and help incorporation of the new framework in the partner's organisation / country.
The joint venture or services agreement would offer the following advantages to a partner:
- the opportunity to share the experience and skills developed by the NHS over many years in corporate and clinical governance;
- a unique package of one-to-one advice, on-site training and on-going support (including by teleconference) delivered by experienced clinicians and health professionals;
- international experience for corporate managers, doctors, nurses and trainees, gained through the placement element;
- an opportunity to stand apart from other organisations in their region / country and to show their commitment to improving patient safety and experience.
Partner organisations would preferably be tertiary level public or private sector healthcare organisations. They could be based in developing or semi-developed countries, or alternatively be organisations based in developed countries who wish to share the experience gained in the UK.
They must demonstrate a willingness to improve patient safety and experience and have the drive to incorporate a new clinical and corporate governance framework. They must be willing to invest to help initiate and support this change.
Interest has already been received in the clinical and governance support offer from China and India
