NHSE&I had commissioned CPGM Healthcare to support the Pharmacy Integration Fund NHS Smoking Cessation Transfer of Care pilot service in the Oldham area.

It was great to work with someone with such knowledge and expertise. The invaluable contribution was efficiently delivered, and Alison was fully committed and always available to answer any queries and to support with the direction of the project. It has been a pleasure to work with Alison on this.

Salford City Council’s recent work with CHL has been a huge success. There was a need to revamp our smoking cessation digital platform and re-engage partners, however, the demands on the Public Health team during the Covid-19 pandemic did not allow for in-house services to dedicate the time needed to this. Alison and the team at CHL brought their expertise, whole system thinking and solution focused approach to meet our changing and growing needs.

CHL were able to deliver for us at pace, with no compromise on quality. Alison would listen to our needs and formulate a logical plan to reach an effective solution. I found Alison’s approach thorough, composed and ‘can-do’. All work was completed to a high standard and communications were proportionate and timely. I was able to trust CHL to be getting on with the task in hand and they returned excellent outcomes.

From my experience, CHL’s expertise in this field means they can deliver transformational outcomes at better value than the time it would take myself and colleagues to learn and undertake the required tasks.

I’ve found our collaboration to be a rewarding partnership and we’ll certainly be working together again. Thanks again Alison, Helen, and colleagues.
