Testimonials

Overall, I have been very happy with the support provided by Redmoor Health, particularly Stacey and Lauren they were incredibly helpful in collating and gathering the supplier choice forms from practices, it was an arduous task and frustrating and complicated due to practices changing their minds, submitting multiple forms but we couldn’t have managed the implementation without them. They were both super organised and managed to keep note of different practices that needed followed ups and Stacey in particular has some local knowledge of working with practices previously that she was able to feed in. I felt confident passing on all practice communications to both of them, knowing they would be able to provide practices with the support they need.

Rosa GoodmanConsultant - Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust

I felt that Redmoor did help with local direct engagement which helped me a lot by lightening my workload as I had two demanding projects to be working on. I didn’t then need to worry about contacting all the practices directly myself as I didn’t have the capacity. The relationship between myself, Stacey and Lauren was one of trust and helping each other so I felt that we were working together towards a common goal which was reassuring.
