Health, Social Care and Wellbeing

We are helping local partners transform health and social care.

The integration of health and social care services – and their connections to employability and poverty – have led us to transform our engagement in this area.

We work with policy makers and service providers to design, review and evaluate services in health and social care.

Our recent clients include Audit Scotland, Scottish Health and Social Care Partnerships, NHS and Clinical Commissioning Groups across the UK.

We also work with charities such as Macmillan and through our grant programmes invest in programmes that  improve health, wellbeing and social inclusion.

U

Evaluating health programmes

We provide independent evaluation of health and social care services across a variety of needs and conditions. Including measuring the cost benefit of interventions and the effectiveness of new innovations that engage service users.

Designing frontline services

We work with service providers to redesign their services, drawing on the experience of service users, service providers and best practice.  We provide helpful visualisations of service models alongside frameworks to measure their effectiveness.

Investing in health and wellbeing

Rocket Science works with funders and commissioners to invest in programmes that improve people’s health and wellbeing. We have particular experience supporting healthy activities for older people, minority groups and people with disabilities.
