Our story

“We only exist to improve the NHS and having worked in the NHS for over 30 years I feel very strongly about how we run our company and I am very lucky to be able to work with such an amazing team.”
– Dr. David Lomax, Founder

We have developed a whole range of robust clinical and operational systems and work in partnership with technology providers. Our existing partners are positive about the impact of our services, with the majority working with us to increase the scale and scope of our service provision. 

We welcomed the NHS England guidelines in May 2022 that integrated care systems should work in partnership with the independent sector to set up virtual wards and other Hospital at Home services. We think that working with a clinically-led specialist provider of Hospital at Home services such as HomeLink Healthcare is an excellent way for the NHS to improve patient flow and deliver successful services. We look forward to continuing to work with ICSs/ICBs to help support them to increase capacity outside acute trusts, reduce crowding in A&E departments, ensure timely discharge of patients and provide better support for people at home. With our experience and expertise we can help accelerate the process, act as a catalyst for change and provide long-term solutions.  

We started working on our first virtual ward in 2019. We have grown significantly and now work with various NHS Trusts, ICSs, ICBs and commissioners, developing and implementing pathways for virtual wards, and also supported discharge, reablement and admission avoidance.

Since we started operating we have:  

  • been regulated and inspected by the CQC
  • achieved ISO9001:2015 accreditation 
  • exceeded the DSP Toolkit requirements for information security  
  • acquired Cyber Essentials Plus certification 
  • safely cared for thousands of patients in the place they call home
