Interest is growing to move more Health & Social Care services online - from self-care advice, GP appointments and prescription requests to finding local healthcare providers.

With a million patients across the UK served every 36 hours, common barriers to communication include differences in language and culture as well as low levels of health literacy. And with over 11 million people lacking basic digital skills, the move to a digitised healthcare system poses some big challenges. 

At Texthelp we create friendly, easy-to-use assistive technology that boosts health literacy for patients and their families in Northern Ireland.

Our award-winning solutions support individuals with challenges like dyslexia who can find it difficult to access healthcare content and services online. We’re also making it easier for staff at many primary and secondary care bodies across the UK to communicate more effectively in the workplace.
Over 40 percent of NHS Trusts in the UK are already offering Texthelp literacy solutions to help patients and staff.
