North West-based tech agency Redmoor Health has made two key new appointments as part of its growth strategy to reach £5m turnover inside three years.

The tech agency specialises in supporting health and social care staff to deploy technology and has seen a huge surge in demand for its services during Covid-19.

Experienced NHS Executive Helen Holmes-Fogg has joined as director of strategy and planning while Steve Tingle brings a wealth of experience with him in his new advisory role.

Holmes-Fogg has held a number of senior roles including CEO of West Lancashire GP Federation while Tingle’s previous roles include the Director of Digitisation for Regulated Care Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria.

Holmes-Fogg has worked in the healthcare sector for 20 years and said she’s delighted to join Redmoor Health.

“Done in the right way, I see digital as an enabler of healthcare and Redmoor Health is doing it right,” she explained. “Digitalisation of healthcare is only going to grow and I’m hoping to bring my experience of working with grassroots NHS into Redmoor to help shape the future direction.”


Tingle added: “My background is social care and I’ve seen how technology has benefited the social care sector and carers. Technology-enabled care allows people to stay at home for longer and avoid going into care. Redmoor Health has forged a reputation for being a trusted partner of the NHS and I’m delighted to join.”

Tech firm targets £5m turnover with office move

Marc Schmid, who founded the business in 2017, described the appointments as ‘game-changing’ as they look to grow from £2m turnover to £5m.

“Both Helen and Steve bring strategic support and experience operating at a senior executive level in the NHS and social care,” he said. “They are working with our leadership team on connecting the ambitions of Redmoor Health with national policy developments to ensure our growth strategy is aligned with the rapidly changing national picture.

“We want to ensure Redmoor Health is not just responding to current challenges but instead helping shape the direction of digital health and care over the next five years.

“We are already involved with a vast number of transformation programmes but we also want to explore where we can use our expertise to support health and care in new emerging areas which will in time embed Redmoor Health as a key NHS and social care transformation partner.

“We have also recently won a number of contracts in local government and see the expansion into these areas as a method of offering a much more holistic approach to improving the digital skills and maturity of both the NHS and social care.”


Redmoor Health has just taken new office space at Strawberry Fields Digital Hub in Chorley and is planning a number of additional appointments after being asked to work with the majority of London practices with training and support.
