A Gloucestershire healthcare technology company has established its first office space in the North of England in preparation for its next phase of growth.

Intouch with Health, based in Cirencester, has agreed a one-year contract at Sci-Tech Daresbury based in Warrington.

Established in 2006, the campus is home to over 130 high-tech companies in areas covering advanced engineering, digital and ICT, biomedical and energy and environmental technologies.

"We have recently secured contracts with leading North West cancer care centres at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, and currently work with over 50 NHS trusts and health boards in the UK and four hospitals in Australia," said chief executive Mike Sanders.

Sanders said that the growth across the North of England and Scotland has necessitated the creation of a dedicated base to access and service its customers in the most efficient way possible.

"As a fast-moving tech company, it's also important for our growth that we are surrounded by and can network with similar businesses that are innovative in their own fields," he added.

"Our new base at Sci-Tech Daresbury will enable this while giving us access to world-class facilities that we are confident will open up new relationships and opportunities for Intouch with Health."

The company works with more than 80 UK NHS hospitals to manage the flow of outpatients using a digital dashboard to relay patients’ movements and locations to hospital staff at each stage of their appointment.

Its electronic outcomes technology is also used by clinicians and hospital staff to accurately capture follow-on data immediately after patient appointments and support NHS Digital.
