Using our proven approach, Origin Health and Social Care Solutions are able to provide fully managed project based solutions to Adult and Children Service Directorates and essential health and social care professionals, to alleviate challenges around capacity and assist our partner’s to clear their backlog of assessments.
We take full responsibility of projects, from selecting the team, through to implementation and management. This minimises risk for our clients, whilst achieving a high-quality service, with faster results and reduced costs.

Social worker shortages in Children's services are making an already challenging job unsustainable for some practitioners, Ofsted has warned in its annual report for 2021-22.
