Build a business case for IBD Nurse Specialists

Nurse and Patient

If you think that your IBD service needs improving, read our step-by-step guide on how to build a business case.

Nurse and Patient

To improve your service, you will usually need to build a strong case for training or recruiting new staff. The key here is in showing value and there are lots of different factors that play into it – service efficiency, A&E avoidance and drug management to name a few.

This page offers examples, guidance and resources for building and presenting your business case – but remember that each individual case will vary depending on your needs.

Starting out

The first task is to gather as much information as you can.

Building your case

Gathering your data

Present your case

Getting you case in front of the right people is key.

Next steps

The time has come to submit your business case for review.
