Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock takes an interest in Doc Abode

It’s been an exciting week for Doc Abode at this year’s NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo which took place at Manchester Central.

Doc Abode was invited to exhibit with 30 other companies from around the UK developing ground-breaking products for the NHS, all of which have been supported by the Academic Health and Science Network to spread innovation.

CEO Dr Taz Aldawoud attended the Expo to spread the word about Doc Abode, its benefits and plans for roll out. In doing so, he attracted the attention of Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock who spent time with Taz discussing the potential impact of the disruptive technology and how it could change the face of clinician deployment.

In his speech at the same event, Matt Hancock laid out his vision for a more tech-driven NHS stating that he wants to “create a world-class ecosystem to make the UK the world leader in HealthTech” and do so by “creating a framework that allows innovators and technology companies to thrive – to meet user needs – and most importantly to support the uptake and adoption of the best of those services”.

Speaking about the event, Taz commented “The interesting discussions we have had throughout the last couple of days have confirmed the role for technology in supporting an over-stretched NHS workforce. Through an independent evaluation of the Doc Abode platform, we have demonstrated that our technology is capable of attracting a ‘new’ workforce who are disengaged with traditional ways of working and through the provision of a more flexible way of working, can deliver better, more personalised care.”
