“As an independent hospice care charity, business relationships are incredibly valuable in helping our family of services to deliver the most efficient, effective and high quality care and support.

A key element of our organisation’s ambitious three year plans is significant development of the IT infrastructure supporting our range of departments – and, in turn, the care we provide. As part of this brief, we sought a strategic partner who could support us to innovate and overcome challenges in a practical and proportionate way, with solutions and developments based on a robust understanding of our organisation.

Following this process, we began working with CT in June 2022 to take our ambitions forward, and we are grateful for the ways they have helped us make the best use of funds for the communities we serve, including kindly offering a discounted charity rate.”

Emily Dobson, Director (Strategy & development) at North Yorkshire Hospice Care

“We enlisted the services of CT to help us ensure technology provided the foundations we need to support our charitable objectives and long term future goals. The team have worked closely with myself, leadership team and board of trustees to help develop a technology roadmap that met these long term charitable and business objectives.

They continue to deliver high levels of customer service at all times and we are confident that should any problems arise they are addressed swiftly and effectively. We are looking forward to continuing our strong relationship with CT into the future”
