Why CF?

CF is a management consultancy dedicated to improving health and care. We inspire clients to make change happen. We support our people to be courageous in doing the right thing.

We are a fast-growing consultancy with the largest team dedicated to healthcare. We have won multiple awards in the last year recognising our impact, including the awards from the Health Service Journal for Best Consultancy and Best Provider of Healthcare Analytics, and from the Management Consulting Association for Best Public Sector Change Management.

We help clients to address their toughest problems and to have sustained impact. We bring innovative solutions based on understanding of both the cutting edge of technology and a realistic understanding of what will work in the client context.  We apply hypothesis-led and evidence-based problem solving, making use of robust analysis. Moreover, we bring healthcare leaders together to align behind a common set of priorities, support the development of capabilities to execute and to develop the mechanisms to sustain change.

Given the rich and unique datasets made possible by the NHS, there are fantastic opportunities to apply advanced analytical techniques, along with powerful visualisations, to provide new insights and cutting edge tools. This enables our teams to spend more time in the synthesis and engagement of clients. We are committed to grow our Healthcare Analytics team and are hiring to build this team.
