DIGITAL agency IEG4, based in Alderley Edge, won the Innovation accolade at this year’s NHS in the North Excellence in Supply Awards.

The awards, hosted by the NHS Northern Customer Board and the Innovation Agency, celebrate the work of businesses, third sector organisations and the NHS in collaborating to deliver great patient care.

IEG4 is a software business delivering digital services for public sector organisations.

IEG4 worked with South Cheshire, West Cheshire, Eastern Cheshire, Vale Royal and Wirral Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) on replacing traditional, paper-based healthcare assessments with a digital solution.

Charles MacKinnon, medical director at IEG4, said: “I’m really pleased our work has been recognised.

“In reality it’s down to the IEG4 and the combined healthcare team at the CCGs who have worked really hard in making sure they delivered a digital vision which improves patient experience.

“The software is now regarded as best practice by the NHS which is something we’re obviously very proud of.”
