Our leadership team brings together professionals with backgrounds in medicine, consultancy, technology, governance and health service provision. Together, we have decades of experience in using new technology to deliver organisational efficiency, remove barriers, and improve patient care.
Because technology is useless if not used, our extended team handles set-up, communication and on-going engagement with GPs and specialists in each area, removing this burden from CCGs/Health Boards and hospitals. We constantly monitor usage rates and stakeholder opinions and we can adapt the way the platform is used in any area based on this feedback. Consultant Connect is a service, not just another initiative.
