Rapid review, analysis and presentation of activity data and projections was a key aspect of the project, allowing the Fusion team to propose clinically credible options, underpinned by robust planning assumptions. Clinical and wider stakeholder engagement across the organisation established common understanding of issues and requirements and consensus on the way forward. These underpinned the estate strategy and appraisal of practical and meaningful options for delivering the specific projects.
Tight project management was essential to ensure that the overall programme and individual projects maintained momentum to meet the challenging timescales. This was overlaid with management of the overarching design process to deliver viable options that could be reconciled to the capital budget and ensure that the economic appraisal delivered a robust solution to meet Trust requirements.
