MediaCityUK-based Now Healthcare Group has appointed Lisa Wood as its Head of Communications.

The Group launched in 2014 and is predicting it will be supporting more than 20 million people across the world by the end of this year.

Wood, who has most recently been working as a freelance communications consultant, spent eight years delivering creative communications and marketing for The Peel Group.

She said: “Technology has completely changed the way we live and is continually revolutionising our lives. The digital health industry is of huge importance to improving our physical and mental health and I am thrilled to be working in such a pioneering business and sector. The vision and plans for the NHG are radical and I look forward to helping them build their brand and share their ground-breaking stories.”

Now Healthcare Group founder and CEO Lee Dentith added: “It is such a pivotal time for NHG as we continue to develop ground-breaking technologies to enhance the health of our growing population. We recently launched our free app Now Patient, which has today, been announced as the No1 download in the App Store - so it is a perfect time for Lisa to join our business, to help share our stories and build our brand over the coming months.”
