Arden & GEM is an NHS organisation that supports a wide range of local, regional and national NHS clients. Our specialist Primary Care Team comprises a wealth of experience and expertise across the primary care agenda. We work with primary care organisations to support greater understanding the PCN DES, enabling maximisation of Impact and Investment Funding, Quality Outcomes Framework funding and Additional Roles funding.
We work collaboratively to understand your individual challenges and deliver multidisciplinary solutions that draw on specialist expertise spanning digital/IT, business intelligence/analytics, population health, workforce planning, organisational development, leadership coaching, financial management, procurement, contract management and governance.
