Inspiring Business by Sharing Success



HEALTHCARE scheduling specialist BookWise Solutions is celebrating its 10th year in business this February, while also reaching another professional landmark this month.


The Burton-on-Trent based company, which develops software to increase efficiency in the NHS, now has scheduling software in use at 100 Trusts across the UK.

Launched in 2011 by Denise Williamson and Lee Copestake with a mission to share “the difference that scheduling can make everyday”, the company first came to market offering its Education product, used to book rooms in healthcare training centres. Since then its in-house team has gone on to develop specialist tools that utilise the same scheduling technology, applying it to outpatient, oncology, renal, day unit and HR specialisms.

Managing director Denise Williamson said, looking back on the 10 years so far:

“We’re delighted to be celebrating a decade in business, particularly after such a challenging year for our sector. From the start our mission has always been to drive excellence and efficiency in healthcare using technology, and the fact we’re now helping 100 Trusts to do this is fantastic.”

“Persistence has been key to getting where we are. If you have confidence that what you’re selling is helping people and the organisations that you work with, then it will show. Your team is also key, and we believe in surrounding ourselves with people that we trust and share the same objectives and ideals to reach our goals together.”

University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust and South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust were early adopters of BookWise Education. Two of the largest contracts have included Birmingham Cancer Network, which purchased Duo for their 6 Hospitals, and Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust which invested in BookWise Outpatients.

13 out of 16 of the digitally advanced Acute Trusts recognised as Global Digital Exemplars - delivering improvements in quality of care through the use of world-leading digital technologies - use BookWise Solutions’ scheduling and room booking software.

Denise added,

“Innovation is at the heart of everything we do so in the future, we’ll continue to keep developing our existing and new products. Working in such a fast-changing environment, you can’t afford to stand still.”
