Preparing Bids and Business cases
Thursday, 26 February, 2015
We are re-running this popular course from 2014 for new LPC personnel or existing LPC members and officers that missed it last time. It was a training day with enthusiastic feedback on the value of the event and the opportunity to prepare a business case in real time with expert support and guidance.
The day takes delegates on a journey to understand how to prepare, substantiate and articulate a business case for submission to a commissioner, including, where appropriate, presenting it to an audience who may not understand or fully appreciate the benefits community pharmacy can deliver.
We will use a series of PowerPoint presentations, plus work shop break out groups and would encourage the delegates to come with an idea in mind to start investigating, which will make searching for information more relevant on the day.
The day will encompass the following areas:
- Defining the need for the service
- Utilise freely available reference sources
- Examining the needs assessments for local areas
- Identifying the case for the service
- Looking at what benefits & outcomes will be delivered by offering the service
- Who will benefit from the service?
- How can these benefits be realised?·
- Building the business case
- Financial viability of a service and costs involved
- Look at how costs can be realised by the commissioner
- How to bring it all together
- Types of information to include when writing the business case
- How to present the information clearly and concisely
- Presenting to a commissioner
- Key messages to be delivered to the commissioner to finally receive approval for the project
At the end of the event, we aim to have walked people through the whole process and given time for people to review their own case they are trying to build.
This event is led by BRR consulting’s Dr Richard Brown and Amanda Moores. BRR has worked extensively in community pharmacy in particular the preparation of successful bids and business cases and have an excellent understanding of the needs of LPCs and contractors. Richard and Amanda have a huge amount of expertise in writing tenders with many years of experience writing for a large multiple. Between them they have won contracts for prison, community hospitals, out of hours and outpatient dispensing pharmacy services.
