Shearwater in the press
The launch of Shearwater Healthcare Solutions attracted very positive press comment in the IT and financial press.
“The venture is well-timed given the demise of the National Programme for IT in the NHS and the resurgence in opportunities for SMEs in the UK healthcare IT sector”, wrote Tola Sargeant for TechmarketView, the leading research specialists on the UK software and services industry.
“In the past, Denley and Bolton have demonstrated a knack for spotting trends early and backing the right horses. Given their track record at System C...we’ll be watching Shearwater’s activities with great interest in the months to come.”
For its part, e-Health Insider coined the description of Shearwater as ‘an IT accelerator’. (Click here to read the EHI coverage in full). The article acknowledged Denley and Bolton’s track record in the UK healthcare IT market, notably setting up and building System C Healthcare plc.
It went on: “System C was the last, sizeable, British-owned, independent hospital software company. Now, 18-months after selling…Dr Denley and Bolton are back; trying to repeat the success achieved with System C – but this time for more companies and faster.”
