We provide a video connection from a health professional to a patient’s TV in their own home. This empowers your local population to live independently and improves their lives. At the same time health professionals can focus on doing what they love, delivering compassionate care rather than spending hours a week travelling.
When we started out we asked more than 1000 older people to test many iterations of the TV video calling device. Our testers called people all over the world from Botswana to San Fransisco. They even modelled their perfect remote controls out of plasticine.
The result: the simplest possible device for someone who has never used technology before.
We have used this obsession with detail to make sure it works just as well for care staff. There are no apps to download and SpeakSet calls are made just by logging into this website. Implementation is a breeze!
IT managers will be as happy as the patients. We have spent countless hours working with NHS IT so no integration work is needed.
The quality of video calls is so surprising, it’s as if you’re in the same room with whoever’s on the other end.
You can always get through. Even if the TV is off the device will ring like a phone. This means patients are always reachable whether that is for medical adherance or just a quick catchup.
Do you want to help the CCG and its member organisations be more efficient and remain true to your belief in delivering compassionate, personal care? SpeakSet reduces staff travel time but unlike other medtech, SpeakSet keeps care face to face and personal.

We ensure that you see real cost savings and give you the tools to present them to your board and members.
But it's not just about saving money. Our whole philosophy is about making people's lives better. Before SpeakSet, our founder lived for two years with his grandparents while they were in their 90’s. He saw the problems they faced and wanted to build something that would help them. After talking to hundreds of other older people, SpeakSet was born.
Now, four years later, SpeakSet is run by a partnership of three large care CICs based across the south of the UK. We use our experience and expertise in delivering quality healthcare to ensure SpeakSet helps to provide even better care for patients.
We care about the patient and believe that remote care will only succeed if they enjoy the experience. Right now, 83% of older people using SpeakSet say it is better than an in person visit to the GP!
On rare occasions you come across new tech that has the potential to be transformational, and I feel this can be said about SpeakSet.
I see huge potential in SpeakSet and I have absolute confidence in the team.
The benefits would therefore be twofold; better patient experience and efficiency in GP time.
If SpeakSet was linked to doctors you wouldn't have to go out to the doctors. I could tell him what's up and what the pain was and he'd know. It would take a lot less stress off us and save them time coming to see me.
SpeakSet is the world’s simplest remote care service
Healthcare is unsustainable and we want to fix it! Older people can live more independently using the technology we take for granted.
Long term conditions put huge strains on our healthcare systems. 4 million older people in the UK say they are isolated. Shockingly, being isolated makes you 45% more likely to die.
The video calling also works in the browser so tech savvy users can log in and make calls on their existing devices.
