Gavin Neate, Founder and CEO: "Anxiety about travel and arrival will be a major factor in access to and use of the health sector for many disabled people as we transition through lockdown. WelcoMe aims to reduce this anxiety by providing a service that supports the disabled person arrival whilst at the same time supporting the staff member in the provision of service. As a Scottish company, we could not be more proud that Golden Jubilee will be the first Hospital in the UK to employ this award-winning technology and we look forward to helping the NHS build back even stronger than they were before".
