We have different resources for different needs, which can help drive improvements organisationally, individually or both.
Our aim is to help organisations transform their culture and develop integrated systems of care. We will help single organisations that want to transform its culture/service or a group of organisations that want to work together to develop networks to deliver integrated systems of care to their populations.
We start with a transformation workshop which helps the key people in the organisation:
- Identify the main pressures they will face in the next decade
- Agree on the principal features of a service transformed to flourish in the new environment
As a result of the Transformation Workshop, organisations can commit to one of our transformation programmes:
These programmes are designed for people who want to lead improvement of health and healthcare – either a whole professional group that knows it needs new skills and knowledge to flourish in the new paradigm or individuals who want to transform the care they provide but are too busy for an MBA.
Professional Development Programme – helping very busy people create and adapt to the new paradigm
Individual & Organisational Development
Masters level modules – on the Five Giants we still have to conquer and the Enablers of transformation

Healthcare Foundations is a BVHC podcast service. A subscription to this service entitles you to receive podcasts on current healthcare topics that are important to you – topics such as redistribution of resources, streamlining, reducing waste and increasing value will be illuminated by introducing you to distillates from the 1000 greatest books about or relevant to the health of populations and the delivery of high value healthcare. We also have podcasts from 1000 great articles on the science of health service management.
Master the language of healthcare -Language creates the social reality of the world in which we work. Being clear about the meaning of terms is one of the key steps in shaping culture. Even if a word has more than one meaning, it is essential that everyone in a health service is aware of this and agrees which meaning should be used. For this reason, BVHC has developed the Glossary of 21st Century Healthcare and a range of other resources to help clarify, and make more consistent, the language of healthcare.
