Improve productivity and deliver top-class healthcare for less with services that equip your on- and off-site staff with the latest technologies.
The health and social care sectors are on a mandated digital journey. Transforming ways of working, communicating and connecting is a key pillar of the UK Government’s policy for delivering frontline services efficiently and cost effectively.
Under relentless budgetary and resourcing pressures, health and social care providers urgently need digital tools and easy access to data to reduce costs, improve patient outcomes and deliver a better employee experience. Vodafone is at the forefront of making this happen with innovative technology and 5G connectivity.
At Vodafone, our track record in health and social care rests on a deep understanding of the challenges today’s healthcare leaders face, day in, day out.
Our technology is facilitating faster turnaround and transfer of diagnostic images and data, providing patients with informed and timely information for a better healthcare experience.
We’re improving first-line contact for patients and concerned citizens by doubling the calling capacity of the NHS 111 advice service to handle 2,400 calls simultaneously. And we’ve provided relief staff for the surging service. Technologies like Software Defined Networking and 5G have led to an explosion in interconnected gadgets, even robotic surgery, supporting better patient outcomes.
Our Connected Living project in partnership with Mencap is overcoming some of the obstacles to everyday living and changing the lives of people with learning disabilities.
The real winners of all this investment in tech are people on the front line. They’re already being empowered to deliver the type of care they want to deliver, aided by the best and most advanced tech money can buy.
Now, with the current global situation accelerating the need to utilise technology and connectivity to transform the way health and care services are delivered, we are truly beginning to see the art of the possible.

The team were looking for a solution that would transform their admin process. By joining up their communications on to a single platform, allows carers to make effective use of time. They can spend less of it worrying about admin and more on what matters most – caring for their patients.
Patients and healthcare professionals are beginning to experience first-hand what greater efficiency looks and feels like. There’s less use of paper, while old equipment like pagers, faxes and out-of-date phone systems are disappearing.
Instead there’s growing use of 5G, cloud and data, as well as computers, gadgets, tablets and mobiles all talking to each other.
Our products are connecting clinicians with clinicians, clinicians with patients, patients with NHS places, NHS places with even more places – all making the everyday more efficient.
Apps like Vodafone DreamLab are speeding up research to find new cures for current or emerging conditions, including cancer and COVID-19.
Vodafone UK is providing connectivity for the new Nightingale hospital in London, upgrading broadband at other hospitals, and supporting NHS workers and the NHS 111 helpline.
Patients are demanding change. They want better outcomes, more immediacy [and are] accepting of virtual ways of working. The pandemic has re-engineered society on our behalf.
