Preston tech firm lands NHS contract to roll out virtual group clinics

Preston tech firm Redmoor Health has landed a contract to help roll out virtual group clinics across NHS Wales.

The virtual group clinics (VGCs) deliver care to groups of people with similar health needs, including diabetes, asthma, rheumatology and dermatology.

Redmoor has won the contract to train up to 250 health organisations in using the technology so they can run the clinics across all areas of the NHS in Wales.

The company, which was founded by Marc Schmid in 2017, has previously run hundreds of training sessions in the primary service sector in England but Wales is the first country to roll it out across the whole health service.

Schmid said: “This is a massive development for us as a company but, more importantly, it’s a hugely significantly step for NHS Wales.

“Covid-19 has accelerated tech adoption in healthcare with things like GP video consultations but virtual group clinics allow patients with long-term conditions to access care securely, safely and conveniently.

“The benefit of the VGC’s is clinicians can see up to 15 patients at a time remotely compared to the previous pre-Covid, face-to-face model, when they would see one at a time.”

The contract with Redmoor – which employs 10 staff and is looking to recruit up to five more trainers – runs up until May 2021.
