With an estimated annual revenue of £16.1 billion, healthcare is an industry in which the UK is a global pioneer and there are many northern healthcare businesses contributing to the sector’s growth outside of the capital. Given the scale of the industry within the UK there are multiple sub-sectors that fall under the healthcare umbrella ranging from the increasingly important commitment to mental health all the way through to specialist services for those living with cancer.
We shine a spotlight on some of the northern healthcare businesses leading the way and delivering pioneering support to their users post-pandemic.
Founded in 2006, health and wellness company OneMedical Group combine their vast experience with industry-leading technology to ensure that patients are educated and empowered on how they can improve their health. Using technology to allow their 485,000 yearly patients to be seen via digital appointments through LIVI, the business is taking great strides towards their vision to “shape the future of healthcare.” Since 2007 they have been providing nationwide NHS services and catering around the client experience, which has led to 16 nationwide healthcare sites built across the UK. With years of understanding on how to serve local communities and their state-of-the-art facilities, OneMedicalGroup is one to watch and it will be interesting to see how they continue to impact the healthcare industry.
