Northgate Public Services
Northgate Public Services provides transformation and improvement services to the public sector. It is committed to working in innovative partnerships that develop sustainable solutions that place the citizen at their heart.
Public services face unprecedented challenges to provide better services and meet unprecedented demand for less. Over the next few years the demand for public services to innovate will become greater as fiscal pressure mounts. The challenge is twofold:
Northgate Public Services retained Rockpools to partner the establishment of an independent Innovation Board as part of a coordinated campaign to get better for less for public services through new ways of working.
The Innovation Board will strengthen Northgate’s innovation drive on behalf of its public services clients and the wider communities in which they operate. This will include:
The five members of the Innovation Board are Lord Victor Adebowale, Ian Birrell, Peter Gilroy, Sir David Henshaw and Professor Gloria Laycock.
Dave Meaden, Chief Executive of Northgate Public Services, said: 'We are passionate about making change work. In these challenging times, we need to think fast and act more quickly if we are to get the dynamic service improvement that people deserve. We are delighted to have such a talented group of people on our new Board. They will help keep our clients on the fast-track of continuous innovation - using information and technology to underpin services that are not only highly valued, but trusted by the public.'
