The MCA has announced finalists for its 2024 awards, and we are delighted to reveal that we have been shortlisted for three categories, recognising the continued impact of our work, and exceptional talent within CF.

The MCA is the Management Consultancies Association which acts as the voice of the consulting industry and represents the UK’s leading management consultancy firms. The MCA Awards have been an integral industry event in the UK consulting calendar for over 25 years and demonstrate the value of consulting to both the public and private sector and the impact consulting has on society.

In this year’s awards, we have been shortlisted for three different awards, including:

Performance Improvement in the Public Sector with Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust

The Trust had the longest average elective waiting time in the country following COVID-19 and commissioned us to help them make rapid changes to improve their elective care. A project spanning just three months led to a 50% increase in throughput for the Trust. Read more about our work here.

Young Consultant of the Year – Libby Dixon

With extensive experience of healthcare at all levels across national policy and strategy through to local delivery, Libby is driven by her aspiration to improve healthcare and support the future sustainability of the NHS.

Rising Star – Will Fryer

 With an ambition to improve access to healthcare and reduce health inequalities at scale, Will’s interest and expertise in data have underpinned his groundbreaking work with clients across health systems and life sciences.

Hannah Farrar, CEO:

I take great pride in seeing CF shortlisted again in this year’s MCA awards – it’s a testament to our relentless commitment to clients and gives well-deserved credit to some of the exceptional talent we have in our firm. We continue to strive to make a real difference and inspire change with our work, and it’s fantastic to see our efforts recognised once again in 2024.”
