By reducing the fear associated with procedures we aim to reduce repeat procedures and shorten treatment times. Finally, by improving child health literacy we provide the foundations for a generation of patients better able to self-manage their healthcare. We’re starting with children with cancer, but we’re aiming to build a health information platform for any patient, of any age, with any condition, anywhere in the world.

Wish us luck for 22nd May 2019 when the winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on 22nd May at The Merchant Taylors’ Hall in the City of London.
