What our clients say

“Central Bedfordshire Council engaged the services of Xyla Health and Social Services (formerly ICS Assessment Services) to address a backlog of Best Interests Assessments and S12 Mental Health Assessments. Although the Council had a team of its own staff who were addressing incoming cases, we were mindful of the risk of delaying assessments for vulnerable adults.”

What our clients say

“We chose to engage with Xyla Health and Social Services (formerly ICS Assessment Services) because of their outcomes-based approach, which offered guaranteed completed assessments in a fixed timeframe and for a fixed cost. This meant that Xyla Health and Social Services were responsible for selecting and managing the specialist staff, allocations and administration and the quality of the completed assessments, so unlike using locums there was no drain on management time.”

What our clients say
“We were impressed with the way Xyla Health and Social Services (formerly ICS Assessment Services) managed the project and very satisfied with the quality of the assessments. Any issues were rapidly resolved and overall we feel thatthis approach represented value for money for the Council.”
