LIVI: Juliet Bauer and Luke Buhl-Nielson
Digital healthcare provider LIVI has announced the appointment of Juliet Bauer as UK managing director.
Bauer, who will succeed Luke Buhl-Nielson, joined LIVI earlier this year after quitting her job as chief digital officer at NHS England.
Her departure was controversial, coming as it did in the wake of an article she wrote for The Times in her capacity as an NHS executive praising LIVI.
Bauer said today that LIVI’s strategy in the UK was “providing faster and more convenient access for patients, enabling doctors to work more flexibly, and reducing the burden on physical GP surgeries. LIVI is at the forefront of a digital transformation in healthcare that is relieving pressure on the NHS.”
LIVI recently announced it had partnered with Boots UK to pilot new in-store video GP services. Using a confidential pharmacy consultation room and in-store tablet computer, patients can now speak to a LIVI GP for medical advice, diagnostics, referrals and prescriptions. The scheme is taking place in North West Surrey and London Liverpool Street.
LIVI is available to 1.85 million patients in five areas so far, and operates in partnership with the NHS to extend access to UK-trained GPs via an app.
Buhl-Nielson will be taking up the position of vice-president business development and operations for the global business.
