At Carnall Farrar we are dedicated to improving health, care and public services more broadly.


Our approach is reinforced by a philosophy of quality and continuous improvement that ensures we deliver to the requirements and expectations of our clients. We believe a successful project is one that continues when we are gone and so we focus throughout each contract on working closely with client staff to build local capability.

Transforming care

A whole system approach to improving health, care and cost effectiveness. We assess the clinical and financial sustainability, develop and align health and care professionals behind a common cause, facilitate the co-design of new services, support the reconfiguration of care delivery and develop new models of care delivery.

Developing the enablers of change

Building a granular understanding of population health and care needs, developing new payment models, making changes in the flow of information, designing and implementing workforce changes, developing estates strategies to meet service needs and release cost and supporting the development of changes in governance so form follows function.
