What we do…


We are the UK’s leading healthcare navigation company providing support to our clients living with cancer.

Every idea starts out as a problem. Ours was simple. The healthcare system is complex and confusing at the best of times. When time is of the essence, figuring out where to get the right care or support and how to get everything organised can quickly become overwhelming. This is what we’ve set out to fix.

Currently our customers are employers and insurance companies, and our clients are people with cancer and their nominated representatives.

Our Client Support Team engages with clients over the phone, through our online portal and accompanying them to appointments.

Come and be part of our team striving to change the way health care is delivered – we want it to be centred on the individual rather than the system. We are focused on cancer today but actively expanding our services into other areas as we seek new opportunities to grow our business.

What you will do…

Ensure we provide exceptional care navigation services and always operate within clear clinical boundaries. Help lead our healthcare revolution!

+ Keep your own knowledge up-to-date and relevant with appropriate CPD, and ensure that the Client Support Team complete appropriate CPD
+ Develop and deliver training materials for the Client Support Team
+ Help identify, attract and recruit staff with the appropriate skill sets for the delivery of our care navigation services

Be accountable for delivering fit-for-purpose care navigation services, through audit and review:

+ Always act to protect the interests and safety of clients and their representatives
+ Ensure that care navigation services meet client expectations, are compliant with best practice procedures, and are subject to continuous improvement
+ Ensure that trusted and credible sources are used for all clinical, emotional or practical information provided to clients by the Client Support Team
+ Ensure we have the necessary clinical procedures and policies to support our business growth ambitions
+ Act as a point of support and escalation for clinical queries within the Client Support Team
+ Own and manage a robust quality assurance framework for the Client Support Team to improve performance and mitigate risks, especially in relation to clinical understanding
