Contract for Care Sourcer
Tech minnow gets slice of £20bn care market
Scottish health tech startup Care Sourcer has secured a contract with NHS England as the firm breaks into a UK care market worth more than £20 billion.
The company uses a technology platform that matches care seekers with care providers in a particular region.
It builds on the company’s provision of home care and care home solutions for individuals in Edinburgh and across the Lothians.
Since launching the business in June last year, Andrew McGinley and co-founder Andrew Parfery, both former healthcare industry executives, have built a customer base that includes care home groups, live in care providers and home care providers and the company recently received funding through Scottish EDGE.
Mr McGinley said: “Our clear mission is to reduce delayed discharge across the UK by helping individuals in need of care find a a provider as quickly as possible and we know we can do this because the status quo is not working for anyone.
“The NHS contract is an exciting development for the company and comes at a time when we are actively engaged in securing the first round of external funding to take us into our next phase of growth.”
