Service: IT Due Diligence
Industry: Specialist Medical and Transportation Services
Intechnica provided IT Due Diligence to Cairngorm Capitals portfolio company, E-zec ahead of their merger with ERS Medical.
Located at 25 sites across the UK, ERS Medical provides patient transport, medical courier, and GP out-of-hours services to over 40 NHS and healthcare customers across the UK. ERS Medical completed 700,000 patient journeys and transported over 10 million pathology samples, and ERS Medical completed over 720,000 patient journeys in the previous year. In 2022, the combined business generated revenues in excess of £100m.
The partnership will deliver considerable geographical expansion, with near national coverage and an extension to their respective services by providing a platform for increased innovation. The strategic collaboration of the two companies will create the UK’s stand-out leader in the provision of non-emergency patient transport services to the NHS and local authorities.
The team at ERS Medical set out to be the leading healthcare transport provider in the UK and have achieved significant growth over the last 5 years. To help unlock our future potential, we have taken the decision to partner with E-zec. Both businesses are specialists in non-emergency transport services and share a commitment to deliver high quality, people-oriented services. This naturally creates the foundations for a strong partnership, enabling the delivery of best-in-class services to our customers, patients and provides further opportunities for all colleagues. I look forward joining the executive team and delivering our next phase of growth.Jeroen van Os, who becomes the group’s Chief Commercial Officer
We are delighted to welcome ERS to our family. The health and social care sectors are undergoing rapid change and our partnership will truly help us to support those in our communities who need us the most. We have much in common, with a shared ethos and culture of care. This is an obvious partnership that strengthens our offering to our employees, customers and patients, while also giving us a platform for further growth. We have much to learn from each other and are excited about the next phase of our growth.Craig Smith, Chief Executive Officer at E-zec.
