Dean has been leading programmes that improve efficiency and productivity across a wide range of areas within the NHS for the past 2 years. He is experienced in delivering transformational change for NHS providers within operating theatres, outpatients, diagnostics & endoscopy achieving improvement in operational efficiencies, productivity metrics and financial benefits.
Dean joined Moorhouse following two years’ managing transformational change and productivity programmes across the NHS for a boutique healthcare consultancy. As a Consultant, Dean led and managed the development, testing and implementation of an assurance framework for the safe and productive restoration of outpatient activity within two complex tertiary services at a large NHS organisation during the Covid-19 pandemic. This led to one service converting 43% of their outpatient activity to virtual attendances as well as the implementation of an additional 3701 appointment slots per annum to review and treat patients.
Prior to that, Dean led the acute sector mapping of a System-Wide Outpatient Programme (SWOP) to improve processes and identify best practices to enable better patient care through transformational change for 5 local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Trusts, local authorities and community services. Additionally, Dean has developed a bespoke Vacant Slot Report (VSR) on Microsoft PowerBI working with internal and external BI teams which realised a 6% improvement in attendances across a large NHS organisation. Before venturing into Consulting, Dean worked for Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust as a Programme Manager leading the cost improvement programme and supporting business planning worth £348m for the Surgery, Cancer and Cardiovascular Division.
When he is not working, Dean plays 11-a-side football for Wadham College Old Boys in the Wimbledon & District football league and is a keen gym goer. Dean goes hiking several times a year across Wales and England with friends enjoying the company and time in the countryside. Notably, Dean has a 2nd dan black belt in Tae Kwon Do winning medals in regional and national competitions.Back
