Company Updates

  • It's often the little things that make the biggest difference, so when our 6 newest development apprentices arrived for their first day, they were given a welcome pack of helpful kit, including a wireless charger, laptop stickers, a water bottle and more!

  • In February, a group from our Development teams in Leeds and Bolton travelled to Manchester to talk about Apprentices. Since then we have confirmed our partnership with Code Nation - Creating Employable Talent and are supporting employees as they start a career in the world of technology.

EMIS Group – Why Work For Us?

About Us

We connect patients and healthcare professionals through integrated, ground-breaking technology, helping people live longer, healthier lives.

Vision and purpose

We’re the UK leader in connecting healthcare technology. Our innovative systems, software and services enable a patients’ whole-life medical history to be safely and securely shared by healthcare professionals across all healthcare settings.

Shared access and contribution to patient records massively improves the quality, safety and effectiveness of care decisions. This means clinicians can provide better, more efficient and often safer healthcare experiences so patients can lead longer, healthier lives.

Where this matters

By joining up the data – from GP surgeries to high street pharmacies and from community care to hospitals – we’re changing the culture of healthcare everywhere

Our Values

We’re a committed group of people, working in expert, driven teams, and we all have a passion for improving the way healthcare is provided. We know the difference excellent technology can make and working with our customers to make longer healthier lives possible for patients is what drives and motivates us. This is how we work together…

We’re the leader in connected healthcare software and services. We provide every health sector with innovative technology, from market-leading clinical management systems to health analytics tools.

We provide excellent, high quality and innovative screening services and administrative support services to clinicians throughout the NHS.

With over 18 million visits per month, Patient is the web’s leading independent health website. It’s packed with up-to-date healthcare information, bringing health, wellbeing, diet and more into one easily accessible place. We help people become more connected to the knowledge they need to make them healthier.

We provide full IT support across the healthcare industry. Our wide range of products and services, including infrastructure, intranets, Wi-Fi networks and websites, make sure our customers always have the technology they need to give their patients the very best care.

    I have been working at EMIS Group full-time (More than 5 years)


    - Flexible working is the norm and cultural, lots of work life balance and some roles are working from home.
    - Working with healthcare IT gives a sense of achievement that you are working on something really important.
    - The Executive Team Member I work for is extremely caring and offers regular face time and coaching
    - Lots of opportunity for progression
    - Great people to work with! Real sense of team spirit.


    Not all roles are advertised for applications and needs more females in senior positions.

    Advice to Management

    Once the strategy is announced ensure you organise yourselves operationally. Ensure the womens network does not become the only forum that women can network in.
