Director of Estates and Facilities
EFM Consulting has been providing strategic property management advice to Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals for almost three years. Marc is a subject matter expert and his technical knowledge has avoided the Trust significant legal costs. Marc is currently undertaking a full review of the Trusts property portfolio ensuring all leases are regularised and buildings are fit for purpose, safe and appropriately positioned for the delivery of the care we provide to our patients.
As part of the service provided, he has realised significant recurrent revenues through robust auditing of third party occupants across the Trust estate. I would have no hesitation on recommending his services to other Trusts or organisations where this type of service is required.
Director of Estates and Facilities
Thank you Marc, your session was very informative and we would highly recommend a training session with you to anyone.
You were very professional, yet approachable. Using the information and tips you have provided will ensure the data is input correctly, and also that the system is easy to navigate, which will save ourselves and our client time when using the system in the future.

Marc delivered an extremely informative Training Session to a number of our team recently. Both the content and the delivery exceeded all our expectations. Myself and another User are already familiar with the system but still learnt new things! The course was attended by our new Specialist Services Manager and our Maintenance Progress Officer, both of whom were really impressed with the system, which I believe was due to a large degree by Marc’s enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to convey the capability of the system in such a short time. I would certainly recommend Marc to deliver training as a Micad expert.

Marc is a knowledgeable personable chap, he is able to explain the workings and uses of the relevant modules and provides a myriad of shortcuts essential for data entry.
