TESTIMONIALSADVENT PROJECT MANAGEMENT “Advent provided consultant project management support to the NHS in developing the ultimately successful business case for the North Wales Clinical School. This undertaking, for which I was Project Director, was a multi site project with a capital budget of £15 million. It has enabled the NHS in North Wales to triple the number of medical students in training across the area with the ultimate objective of retaining more graduates locally when their training is complete. It was a complex venture which involved detailed negotiations with Cardiff University and the HE providers in the region regarding the significant increase in the number of medical students to be trained in North Wales. It required the building of specialist teaching facilities and accommodation at all three North Wales DGHs as well as at Bangor and Glyndwr (then NEWI) Universities. The call on health funding for development in the university sector was a particularly sensitive issue and the demands placed on the project team in preparing the business case were considerable. The Assembly appointed its own specialist consultant to review the business case. Advent proved to be totally reliable and committed consultants throughout and made a significant contribution to both the overall management of the project and the preparation of a number of detailed technical appendices. Ian Williams was Advent’s lead, supported by Stephen Burrows. They were easy to work with, focussed on the project needs, they delivered to deadlines and were always prepared to “go the extra mile” when required. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for consideration in respect of further projects within NHS Wales”. John Roberts – former Project Director: North Wales Clinical School; last substantive NHS appointment – Director of Corporate Services, North Wales”.
