Our story

In 2009 a group of forward looking NHS chief executives wanted the NHS to catch-up in its use of digital technology but had no suitable partner to work with. Health2Works was started by Steve Pashley and Roger Marlow to be that partner. Our mission is to create low-cost, easy to use applications that enhance productivity and improve patient and carer experience.

We ran our first Fast Focused Innovation process in late 2009. Patients, carers, clinicians and managers came together to generate literally hundreds of ideas for how web technologies could make a difference in the NHS.

Since then we have repeated the FFI process around the UK over 20 times and dozens applications for communication, productivity and improved service experience are in use as a result.

Strengthened by investment from Lloyds Development Capital, the Department for Business Innovation and Skills and the European Regional Development Fund, Health2Works is unique in combining a deep understanding of public services with mastery of up-to-date web technology and software development techniques.

At the heart of Health2Works is an experienced, knowledgeable team with a multi-disciplined digital skillset, a fundamental understanding of the NHS, the Public and Private Sectors and the ability to fine-tune solutions to meet every challenge.
