Reliable Hosting Helps Clinisys Fulfil NHS Vision for Efficient Pathology Networks

Following the NHS’s drive to consolidate pathology services into efficient regional hub and spoke networks, Clinisys, the leading supplier, of Laboratory Information Management systems (LIMS), needed a hosting partner they could trust implicitly. Moving to Telefónica Tech’s secure managed hosting, delivered the resilience, scalability, and security, demanded by the NHS, and essential for Clinisys to successfully run 10 of the newly formed networks.

The Solution - Reliable Hosting

Opting to partner with Telefónica Tech made sense; they already had credible healthcare expertise from working with over 68 healthcare customers. This was coupled with a proven track record of running a managed service for several blue light services, and a customer satisfaction score in the top 5% of the IT industry.


Their security expertise was also a deciding factor, and with Telefónica Tech’s SOC and SIEM team, Clinisys have been able to respond to the increased risk from the changing cyber threat landscape in the NHS and health sector. They are also successfully sharing expertise to help Clinisys evolve their DevSecOps capabilities in their own team.

Results - Maximising Efficiency

With their grow-together strategic partnership Telefónica Tech and Clinisys have successfully won contracts to manage 10 of the new regional pathology networks across the UK. Their biggest contract to date is for a major network in the North of England, covering a patient population of nearly 3 million.


Clinisys’ scalable end-to-end systems allows pathology services to become more efficient and standardised. For example, Black Country Pathology Services is aiming to contribute £5 million savings to the £200 million estimated savings anticipated as part of the reorganisation of pathology networks*.  Looking ahead, Telefónica Tech will help Clinisys accelerate efficiency further by moving towards a cloud-first strategy. This will look to run more apps in the cloud, whilst maintaining the security and reliability NHS pathologies systems rely on.
