Jennifer Neff, Co CEO and Co Founder of Elemental said “More and more organisations in health and social care, housing, VCSE and Prison Care are recognising the benefits of digital for personalised care, and the impact that our platform can make to their social prescribing programmes and services. But, we’re more than just software as a service, we know the success of each social prescribing programme relies heavily on establishing strong partnerships. There’s no better person than Paul to help us create these partnerships. He has so much experience working with GPs and healthcare professionals so he’s instantly able to recognise how we can help to drive impact and uptake of community services, ensuring effective personalised care is the priority all the way. We’re so lucky to have him share our vision and help drive and support our strategy.”
