To help support digitisation throughout the UK healthcare industry, a group of healthcare technology companies has added a NHS technology supplier to its team.
The Clanwilliam Group has acquired specialist systems developer Medisec, making it the 13th healthcare technology company to join the group.
Medisec is an approved supplier to the NHS and provides its services to around 15,000 primary and secondary healthcare professionals. Trusts currently using Medisec’s software include the Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust.
The acquisition of Medisec by the Clanwilliam Group is intended to help the company reach other parts of the country.
Ceri Rothwell, managing director at Medisec Software, said: “This is a tremendous opportunity to expand and improve the ways we support the NHS, at a crucial time of digital transformation in the health service.
“Joining Clanwilliam Group will allow Medisec to access a huge wealth of experience, technical expertise and resource as we work alongside other health technology providers in the group, exploring integration and collaboration opportunities. At the same time we will retain our distinct leadership, our experienced teams and the trusted brand that Medisec customers rely on.” Rothwell continued.
Over the past 14 months the Clanwilliam Group has invested £9.5 million into technology companies serving the NHS, which are helping to reduce the deficit in NHS Trusts by £14 million every year.
Howard Beggs, CEO of Clanwilliam Group said: “Clanwilliam Group’s growth strategy across the UK is to actively develop a group of highly synergistic healthcare technology and services businesses. We back leadership, and select companies who are already driving innovation in the healthcare industry and which, with the right support, have the potential to transform the healthcare landscape even further.
“All companies within the group remain independently committed to developing their respective flagship products and services, but as part of Clanwilliam Group, each benefits from synergies of shared knowledge and expertise, that can in turn be passed on to customers and ultimately patients.
“Medisec Software is an instant fit, providing cleverly integrated technologies with a long-term commitment to helping NHS organisations through their digital transformation. We are looking forward to working with Ceri and her team to build on the success already achieved.”
