Redmoor Health appoints two to drive growth

Chorley-based Redmoor Health has made two appointments as part of its plan to achieve £5m turnover within three years.

Redmoor is a tech agency that supports health and social care staff to deploy technology. Its services have seen a huge surge in demand for its services during Covid-19.

Helen Holmes-Fogg, an experienced NHS executive has joined as director of strategy and planning while Steve Tingle joins in an advisory role.

Helen has worked in the healthcare sector for 20 years and has held a number of senior roles including CEO of West Lancashire GP Federation.

She said: "Done in the right way, I see digital as an enabler of healthcare and Redmoor Health is doing it right. Digitalisation of healthcare is only going to grow and I’m hoping to bring my experience of working with grassroots NHS into Redmoor to help shape the future direction.”

Steve’s previous roles include the director of digitisation for Regulated Care Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria.

He said: “My background is social care and I’ve seen how technology has benefited the social care sector and carers. Technology-enabled care allows people to stay at home for longer and avoid going into care. Redmoor Health has forged a reputation for being a trusted partner of the NHS and I’m delighted to join.”

Marc Schmid, who founded the business in 2017, described the appointments as 'game-changing' as they look to grow from £2m turnover to £5m.

He said: "Both Helen and Steve bring strategic support and experience operating at a senior executive level in the NHS and social care. They are working with our leadership team on connecting the ambitions of Redmoor Health with national policy developments to ensure our growth strategy is aligned with the rapidly changing national picture.

"We want to ensure Redmoor Health is not just responding to current challenges but instead helping shape the direction of digital health and care over the next five years."

Redmoor Health has just taken new office space at Strawberry Fields Digital Hub in Chorley and is planning a number of additional appointments after being asked to work with the majority of London practices with training and support.
