We are Difrent

Rachel Murphy
CEO of Difrent

Difrent was born out of a deep frustration …

When I was responsible for patient-facing transformation across the NHS, I simply couldn’t find a professional services company who could deliver.

From launch we had a clear vision of how to disrupt the marketplace by offering something fresh, thoughtful, and challenging to both our clients and consultants; a clear strategic focus on the importance of people alongside expert technology solutions.

And here we are just three years on … 

Over the last 12 months, we had three different companies approach us about a potential buy-out. The Panoply stood out because you share our values and our mission.  To really make a difference for patients, service users and citizens on a much larger scale, with user-centred design at the heart, and take on the big boys in doing so!

We are digital and transformation delivery specialists who partner with Healthcare and Social Organisations to solve complex problems and achieve big outcomes that meet the needs of their users: 

We have an enviable client list in the Health Care and Government space including Department of Health and Social Care, NHS Business Services Authority, NHS Digital, Public Health England, the World Health Organisation, Department of Work and Pensions, HMPPS, DEFRA, Planning Inspectorate, BEIS and the British Psychological Society.

In a nutshell we are known for:

  • Delivering positive, user-centric outcomes in partnership with our clients
  • Enabling strategic leaders to navigate complexity, make better informed decisions, and operate more effectively
  • Helping organisations build sustainable and progressive delivery practices and cultures, developing internal capabilities and confidence
  • Being diverse in everything we do, resulting in inclusive and accessible end-to-end services
  • Putting the needs of real-world people at the heart of business transformation and service delivery
  • Providing value for money above and beyond initial requirements, helping our clients deliver their vision and strategy in line with their values

Underpinning everything we do and what we believe in is our culture:

I am absolutely certain that Difrent will be an asset to The Panoply and  the opportunity for our people to be part of a 400-person group with a shared purpose and energy is just awesome!

Thank you all for making us all feel so welcome.
