Join us on Wednesday 16th December 13:00 – 13:45
We are pleased to announce that 18 Week Support has been appointed to the Increasing Sector Capacity Framework. This framework, available until March 2021, has been established to provide additional funding and capacity to the NHS to enable improved access for patients.
The Government Spending Review announced an additional £3 billion next year to support the NHS’ recovery from the impacts of Covid-19. This includes around £1 billion dedicated to beginning to tackle the elective backlog, including one million extra checks, scans and additional operations or other procedures. These services can also be sourced by direct award via the NHS Shared Business Services framework. Whilst both options present an opportunity to assist in reducing your waiting lists across a wide range of specialties, at these difficult and unprecedented times we are aware that many organisations will still struggle with freeing in-hospital capacity.
18 Week Support and Consultant Connect have therefore come together to offer an end-to-end solution to help clear waiting lists in a wide variety of specialties. Should you not require the full end-to-end provision, both Consultant Connect’s Referral Backlog Triage or 18 Week Support’s services can also be booked separately, providing a tailored solution to your organisations requirements.
What we do
18 Week Support are the largest clinical insourcing provider in the UK, successfully delivering services for over NHS 100 hospitals, seeing over 170,000 patients per annum across 14 specialties. 18 Week Support have significant clinical capacity with a 1500 strong clinical workforce and are able to mobilise services quickly and efficiently within 2 to 3 weeks.
Consultant Connect offers Referral Backlog Triage for 17 specialties using their National Consultant Network. This referral assessment service can be delivered within 5 working days of go-ahead and is will manage highly volumes quickly (e.g. 3,450 referrals reviewed in 3 weeks).

We hope to see you there, we are very excited to share more information on this opportunity with you.
