Langan and Schroter Ltd
PO Box 385
Langan and Schroter. What do we know about them? They're specialists. Have worked in healthcare for years. Very hands on. Can provide resource as well as ideas.
They're flexible. They're team players who can work in a management consultancy capacity, or operate as interim managers. What they're keen to do is share their experience and achieve positive results. They're hands-on, and they have good contacts too, who act as sounding boards for ideas and provide more technical input when it's needed.
They say we should use them as the need arises. To review procedures, facilitate workshops, undertake gap analyses, develop action plans, provide training, prepare us for inspections.
They have worked with start-up organisations and established businesses, including those from overseas, wanting to market and sell their products or new technologies to the NHS. It's called access consultancy.
Unusually for management consultants, Langan and Schroter has first-hand experience of what it's like to work in the NHS. They have interesting ideas, for sure, but they're based on operational reality.They have the benefit of objectivity, can isolate themselves from internal crises and reactive management and focus on the issues.
They have first hand knowledge of external reviews, performance management, capacity planning, implementing service and cost improvement programmes, risk management, governance, communications, operational management and private patient healthcare within the NHS.
