A fast-growing HealthTech agency is preparing to move into new offices as it targets £5m turnover inside three years.
After winning a series of high-profile contracts and making a raft of new appointments, Redmoor Health has taken office space at Strawberry Fields Digital Hub in Chorley, Lancashire.
Redmoor Health specialise in supporting health and social care staff to deploy technology and has seen a huge surge in demand for its services during Covid-19.
The company is helping Zoom as the tech giant rolls out its technology across the NHS and has signed a contract with London Ambulance Service to provide training to their staff in Microsoft Teams and Office 365.
Marc Schmid, who founded the business in 2017, said the company was on track to hit a record turnover of £2m this year and was targeting growth to £5m by 2024.
As part of its growth strategy the company is expanding into supporting the local government sector and have made four new appointments, taking their workforce to 20.
Charlie Brooks joins as marketing officer; Alison Schmid has been recruited as corporate director; Vicky Lyon has been appointed project assistant; and Lynn Tomlinson is a training advisor.
Due to the increased headcount Redmoor Health is moving from its current base in Preston’s Business First Park to top floor offices at Strawberry Fields Digital Hub.
Mr Schmid said: “In the last six months we’ve run 203 workshops compared to 180 in the whole of 2020 and had 2,555 attendees. We’ve also worked with over 650 GP practices.
“Moving to Strawberry Fields is the next step in our journey as we look to grow turnover from £2m to £5m in three years.
“It’s very accessible to the motorway network and has a lot of collaborative space and a really good learning suite that you can book out.
“The breakout facilities at Strawberry Fields will allow us to undertake more simultaneous online training sessions for NHS teams across different parts of the UK.”Mr Schmid described the latest deal with London Ambulance Service and working with Zoom as ‘game-changing’.
“Zoom approached us to help them deploy their technology across the NHS,” he said.
“They’ve created a fast-growing base in the UK and already work with some really good NHS trusts.
“We’ll be working on lots of projects with frontline NHS teams on getting the best use out of Zoom in different scenarios.
“It’s really exciting for us to be working with Zoom because our history is around digital inclusion at the patient end and this is a great opportunity to get more patients engaged in health through technology.”
Mr Schmid said the contract with London Ambulance Service reflected Redmoor Health’s growing profile.
“12 months ago we didn’t have any foothold in London,” he said. “Now we’re working with GP practices across the South East and London.
“London Ambulance Service are rolling out Microsoft Teams and Office 365 so we’ve providing a programme of training support to all their staff. It’s going to be quite intensive for around 30 weeks.
“For a Lancashire-based company like Redmoor Health it’s great to be able to get our teeth into programmes in London and the South East.
“We’ve grown a lot during the last 12 months and we’ll be announcing details soon of some charities we’ll be raising funds for.”
