Healthcare is an on going consideration for Local Authorities. Ensuring citizens get the care and attention they need while working to stringent budgets is a challenge that digitalisation might be able to solve. This is becomming a very real concept for UK healthcare services with a number of NHS trusts across the North East, making a formal agreement to collaborate on digital health services for the benefit of their patients.

County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust has been using digital solutions across a number of its services for several years, combining technology developed by Harrogate-based digital health specialists, Inhealthcare Limited, and the clinical expertise of medical and other healthcare professionals.

This collaboration led the trust to establish Healthcall Solutions Limited to further develop the use of digital technology. The trust has now awarded shares in the company to neighbouring NHS acute trusts in return for active participation and collaboration.
