Learn More About Us image

Established in 2005 by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in a unique partnership with digital experts Sopra Steria, our services increase efficiency and quality, save time and money, and support world-class patient care.

Our unique joint venture means we reinvest a high percentage of revenue back into our services, allowing us to make significant capital investments at scale and at our own risk. Put simply, we invest so our clients don't have to.

The support we provide to the NHS - when and where our clients need it most - demonstrates our resilience and reliability, and has created a robust platform for a new era of co-designed services and solutions.


Our vision
"Helping the NHS to save money and enhance quality so that the NHS can improve health, innovate to save lives and deliver better outcomes with care and compassion."
