After a successful pilot, Accelerator company Q doctor has partnered with Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) to give patients access to video consultations with healthcare professionals – all 735,000 of them. This is a great success, and makes us proud of the work our SMEs do to improve health and care in the UK.
Susan Ombler, director of nursing, allied health professionals and operations for LCHS said: We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Q doctor. This exciting new service will allow us to deliver great care for patients, close to home.”
By utilising the latest technology in addition to traditional face to face treatment, we are increasing choice and removing the stress and inconvenience of travel from our patients.
“As the NHS continues to make best use of available technology, it is only right that LCHS is at the forefront of implementing innovative technology that will improve access to healthcare in a rural county such as Lincolnshire.”
Dr Chris Whittle, Q doctor’s Founder and CEO, said: “Following a successful pilot in Lincolnshire, we are delighted to be partnering with LCHS for a longer term collaboration that will support important modernisation in healthcare services for people living in the county. With The Royal College of Physicians recognising that technology and digital solutions are a critical part of future hospital outpatient care provision, it is great to be at the forefront of the drive to modernise NHS services to improve care and outcomes for all patients.”
