About us

A different type of organisation

We have established Orielton and The Network to offer the best way possible of delivering practical support in some of the key areas that will help make future models of healthcare a reality. It’s not just an organisation, but a network.

Those involved bring many years experience not just of ‘being there and doing it’,  but also of working with each other. We bring new insights, for example, the commercial sector experience of Neil Griffiths who has spent 30 years working in healthcare, 7 of them reporting to the main board of a FTSE 100 company as lead for the health sector. Our network of experienced individuals and groups know how to deliver innovation in health and care, including improving productivity and introducing new technology.

We have experience working with the NHS and local government, and their partners and suppliers, and perhaps most importantly, in bringing each of these together to deliver improved services for patients.

We bring experience of working both inside public sector organisations, and with them through commercial organisations, helping both the NHS and its suppliers to meet key challenges, including delivering Integrated Care Systems, driving efficiencies, improving infrastructure, introducing new technology and getting the benefits of digital services.

Offering a different approach

We want to enable you to get the kind of support you need, from the people best placed to provide it. We aim to offer a one-stop-shop, but one that’s a bit different.

There are two kinds of one-stop-shop – those that try to do everything for you, and those that provide a single point of access to a network offering what you need. Our aim is to offer both. The convenience of one organisation delivering where you need that, but also access to a network of experienced, senior professionals who know how to deliver new enterprises, new technologies, new partnerships, and engagement with patients and the public.

You get practical support through our network, operating in a way that delivers the greatest level of experience and capability in the most cost effective way.
