What we do

Healthcare strategy and regulation

Flint provides expert regulatory and strategy advice to clients in the healthcare sector. We advise boards and senior teams on how to achieve the best possible outcomes from mergers, commissioning initiatives and development of new models of care.

Our team has extensive experience of working across the industry, with government, arms-length bodies and regulators, representative bodies, clinicians, executives and investors. We are uniquely placed to help these different stakeholders understand the context in which the others operate and make sense of the complex regulatory regime.

Organising people, institutions and resources to deliver health and social care effectively is immensely challenging. We help organisations to identify opportunities, design and implement solutions to problems, quantify the benefits of action and navigate the complexities of health policy and the regulatory regime.
