We have entered into a strategic partnership with specialist external occupational health provider, Health Partners, to outsource our occupational health services. The new partnership will enable us to scale this service and increase our connected health offering to our corporate clients.
The partnership will outsource our entire occupational health service by sub-contracting this element of our connected health contracts.

Health Partners, formerly Duradiamond Healthcare, prides itself on being clinically led, focusing entirely on delivering high quality occupational health, it has invested significantly in its infrastructure and occupational health platform, Gateway - a gold standard in the market. We selected Health Partners as its occupational health services fit with existing corporate contracts and will enable our corporate clients to seamlessly benefit from outstanding occupational health services.
