Supporting healthcare systems and organisations to determine priorities and plan for delivery


Attain’s Strategy team works in partnership with customers to develop strategy and provide advisory and consulting services to plan and create environments for successful, sustainable transformation of the healthcare economy.

  • Focusing on strategic transformation of systems and organisations, reducing complexity and the optimisation of resources, we integrate our offer with the wider Attain service lines to root strategy in deliverability.
  • Working across and within organisations, we use proven toolkits to support partnership, executive and leadership teams to:
    • determine local care economy and organisational priorities, and plan for their delivery
    • analyse and interpret complex data, by creating models, dashboards and simulation tools
    • enable transformation and change through good governance, stakeholder engagement, organisational development and partnership development
  • The highly skilled team includes experienced strategy management consultants, analysts, clinicians, operational research specialists, statisticians and accountants.

We specialise in five domains:

  • SYSTEM LEADERSHIP – working alongside system leaders to create the optimal environment to transform care economies and broker consensus
  • DEVELOPING AN EVIDENCE BASE – building and analysing an evidence base to support robust and insightful decision-making
  • STRATEGY – developing leading edge, visionary strategy drawing on best practice and experience
  • DELIVERY DESIGN – defining and designing the roadmaps and programmes to deliver strategy
  • ENABLING CHANGE – creating an environment for effective implementation and lasting change

West London CCG logo “I have been really impressed by many members of the [Attain] team and the general approach of the organisation. In fact, I would say that I have never worked with a more dedicated group of individuals. The team supported the project from business planning through to delivering an innovative service in bespoke premises… The team had a clear strategy and worked with extraordinary energy to keep on top of all of the threads of this complex project. Attain have helped us to keep the project focused and we have met tight deadlines. I would not hesitate in recommending the team at Attain. I really hope that I have the opportunity to work with the them again in the future.”
