Breakfast with Matt Hancock at Number 10 Downing Street

We were thrilled to be invited to meet with Matt Hancock at No 10 Downing Street on Monday. The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care was gathering perspectives to inform the Government’s Ageing Society Grand Challenge (part of the Industrial Strategy).
Hugh Lloyd-Jukes, our CEO, commented, “Ward staff and carers across the country are harnessing the Oxehealth Digital Care Assistant to reduce injuries, improve patient outcomes and save time across mental health and dementia settings.

It was a great privilege to share what we’ve seen working and offer some concrete ideas for how we believe technology can support carers and clinicians to deliver the government’s Grand Challenge aim of at least 5 extra healthy, independent years of life for everyone in the UK by 2030.”

Leaving, Hugh could not resist a picture at the iconic front door!
