Consultant Connect

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 improve patient care and deliver organisational efficiency.

Because technology is useless if not used, our extended team handles set-up, communication and on-going engagement with GPs, paramedics, nurses etc and specialists in each area, removing this burden from CCGs/Health Boards, Hospitals and Ambulance Trusts. We constantly monitor usage rates and opinions and we can adapt the way the platform is used in any area based on this feedback.

Consultant Connect is a supported service, not just another initiative.
