Our clients

NPAG have clients from across Britain and from a wide range of NHS organisations.  These include acute, community, mental health and ambulance trusts.


NPAG originated from two separate organisations.

An Essex based in-house NHS management consultancy service – called ‘Thames Management Services’ from 1991.

NPAG – established and funded by the Department of Health in 1983 to provide advice and guidance regarding pay / productivity issues for ambulance, ancillary and estates staff.

In 1999 Thames Management Services and NPAG became trading partners and in July 2006 NPAG became a trading division of the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust, following the reconfiguration of ambulance services in England.

“Throughout my association with NPAG, I found their work to be of an exemplary standard. They were very organised, professional and courteous throughout – with a good sense of humour. I would relish the opportunity to work with NPAG again and recommend them for work of this nature…..”
