Dedicated Account Management

Because a service is useless if not used, our team handles set-up, communication and on-going engagement with GPs and specialists in each area, removing this burden from the CCG and the hospital.

We constantly monitor usage rates and stakeholder opinion and we can adapt the way the service is used in any area based on this feedback.
