Manchester commercial law firm Kuits has advised healthtech organisation EQL on the addition of its digital musculoskeletal (MSK) triage support tool, Phio, to the UK Government’s public procurement portal, the G-Cloud 12 platform.
G-Cloud 12 helps customers in the UK public sector, including the NHS, find suppliers and save money when procuring common goods and services.
Being listed as a supplier on the G-Cloud 12 platform is a key step in enabling EQL to supply its digital triage services directly to the NHS, via its Phio app.
Phio, a digital MSK triage support tool, remotely provides information on clinical signposting to the suitable care pathways to those with MSK injuries.
The Kuits team was led by Commercial and IP partner Caroline Brennan and associate Rebecca Bainbridge.
Caroline Brennan said: “It is a great success for our client, EQL, to be listed on the G-Cloud 12 platform. This will allow them to supply their digital triage support tool directly to the NHS, which we think will prove to be a hugely beneficial tool for the NHS to utilise during the current pandemic.”
Jason Ward, Co-founder and CEO of EQL said: “We’re delighted to be a named supplier on the G-Cloud 12 platform. Phio was created with a vision of providing patients with better access to the right MSK care. Through the work undertaken by the team at Kuits, we are now able to offer this service directly to the NHS which will allow for many more patients to experience the benefit of our digital-first support tool.”
