InHealth Group acquires Echotech Limited

Thursday 16 January 2014

InHealth Group, the leading provider of a range of diagnostics services and solutions to the NHS in both acute and community settings, is delighted to announce that it has today completed the acquisition of Echotech Limited, for an undisclosed sum.

Echotech is a provider of high quality community based cardiology services to NHS patients across the UK, relying on very experienced peripatetic staff and state of the art diagnostic equipment.

InHealth and Echotech have been working in partnership since 2007 in a number of regions, including the successful provision of echocardiograms to the NHS London Diagnostics service. The founders of Echotech will remain with the business.

Richard Bradford, CEO of InHealth commented 

" This acquisition is a very logical evolution of our relationship with Echotech whose service standards, patient focus and responsiveness have always matched our own. Together we will build on our established and effective model of delivery to make community cardiology tests more accessible to patients, outside an acute setting and closer to their homes."

"I am very pleased that we have been able to add Echotech’s skills and expertise to the InHealth Group. It builds on our strategy of growing our range of clinically excellent services and solutions for our clients. We will continue to extend our robust direct access and community based diagnostics capabilities to assist GPs and all our clients in configuring services to better meet patients’ needs."

Dominic Elton, Business Director and co-founder of Echotech added

We are excited by the prospects for growth and a broader opportunity to serve NHS patients which will result from a closer relationship with InHealth and the support of a larger team. I look forward to working with InHealth on the next phase of our development.
