NHS IMAS offers National Health Service (NHS) organisations that need short or medium term support, the means to access the management expertise that exists throughout the NHS.

We were established in 2008 to encourage and facilitate the NHS to use the wealth of skills already available to it. The aim is to improve and sustain the quality of health care services in the local community they serve. We are committed to providing assistance to the NHS in a way that builds a sustainable legacy.

NHS IMAS has two pools made up of experienced senior NHS professionals and carefully selected independent consultants who undertake assignments to support NHS organisations.

The programme has a small core team that concentrates on building the talent pool, assignment management, scoping and evaluation and project management. NHS IMAS does not charge commission for using its services.

Any NHS organisation can access support from NHS IMAS. We support NHS clients to meet a broad spectrum of challenges.

Support is tailored to the needs of the client and can include elements of interim capacity and capability, organisational renewal, intensive support, consultancy or any combination of these.
