IC24 joins Urgent Health UK
The Urgent Health UK membership covers 55% of the population
Integrated Care 24 (IC24) has joined a national federation of social enterprise providers to demonstrate our commitment to delivering high quality integrated urgent care.
Urgent Health UK (UHUK) is a partnership of non-profit and social enterprise healthcare providers serving over 37million people across the UK.
Like IC24, its members deliver compassionate, high-quality NHS services – supporting GP Practices, emergency departments, urgent treatment centres, NHS111, community nursing, emergency dentistry, minor injury units and more.
Commenting on joining UHUK, IC24 Chief Executive, Dr Andrew Catto says: ‘As a leading social enterprise healthcare provider we are delighted to be joining UHUK and having the opportunity to collaborate more closely with other like-minded organisations to make a bigger difference together and demonstrate the benefits of our innovative technology. It is clear to me that social enterprises have a huge amount of experience and expertise to offer both on a regional and national level when it comes to the delivery of high quality healthcare. I hope that together we can continue to demonstrate the benefit of the social enterprise model, and in IC24’s case, show how integrated urgent care services can relieve some of the pressure on acute and primary care sectors.’
Conor Burke, CEO UHUK commented ‘IC24 is a dynamic and innovative organisation, and I am thrilled they have chosen to join UHUK. By harnessing IC24s and our existing members drive and expertise we will inspire collective action and improvement within and across UK health and care systems.’
UHUK members are united by a commitment to provide the best possible care to our patients and our passion to make a difference to society.
