NHS Consortium

At The Data Shed, we have collaboration in our DNA, working with many firms and organisations across our region and sector.

Last year, we started working with a consortium of like-minded SMEs, led by Hippo Digital, to bid for the new four-year Digital Capability for Health Framework and we were delighted to have been accepted onto the framework. 

Our CEO Anna notes “Collaboration is in our DNA at The Data Shed and we’re really excited to be working alongside our talented partners in this consortium. We all have specialist skills and strong healthcare experience and together we’ll make a big difference to the quality of care provision within the NHS and other care organisations.

We’ve seen in the last year how we’ve relied on the NHS even more than usual and we’re proud to be playing our part in using digital solutions to transform the future of health and social care”.

The framework enables service providers in the health and care sector to bring digital skills, services and products into their organisations (which includes not just NHS Digital but also other national, regional and local public sector health and social care bodies) from a list of approved experienced suppliers. 

The Government has committed to spending £1 in every £3 of central government spending with SMEs by 2022 and it enables firms like The Data Shed and Hippo Digital to be approved suppliers for procurement frameworks.

All the firms involved in the consortium have solid track records in delivering high quality results right across the health and care sector and we’re looking forward to working together and building on the partnerships we’ve already developed.

Our partners in the group have a blend of specialist skills and health industry experience and together we will provide a strong service and deliver value to the NHS. Thanks to Hippo Digital, Answer Digital, Made Tech and Apira Ltd for their continued support through the bidding process.

We’ve seen the incredible work that the NHS does and we have particular reason to be grateful for it in the last year, and we’re excited to be able to help it improve the quality of care to make a huge difference to patients and healthcare workers alike.
