Lean Sigma in NHS

What is Lean Sigma in NHS?

MA Consulting, in cooperation with South Wales University, specifically designed a Lean management programme to help the NHS, through a series of workshops and individual coaching sessions, to:

  • Reduce infection
  • Reduce costs
  • Reduce waiting time
  • Increase medical time with patients
  • Improve patients’ experience
  • Optimise beds and building utilisation

While designing this programme we kept in mind that some people in your wards or delivering your services:

  • Fear change and, or loss of power
  • Are not quite comfortable with current practices
  • Demonstrate lethargic and negative attitudes toward lean management
  • Do not have time
  • Do not always show leadership in solving issues

The programme:

  • Stimulates thinking
  • Encourages participation
  • Focuses on outcomes relevant to individual participant’s situations

What are the benefits for the NHS Hospital?

  • You’ll get the highest level of support from the academic and business consultancy worlds through the association of the South Wales University and MA Consulting
  • You’ll start with a clear vision, and staff will learn how to remove obstacles to the new vision
  • You’ll get people collecting accurate data for you, as we understand that your people do not have the time to do it, and it is a cumbersome task for untrained staff
  • Your employees will
    • Establish a sense of urgency
    • Learn how to create powerful coalitions to get their project off the ground
    • Learn how to plan systematically and create wins
    • Find out how not to declare the victory too soon
  • You’ll anchor the changes in the organisation’s culture
  • You’ll meet your targets
  • You’ll reduce your costs
  • Your patients will get the experience they deserve
