Here they are:
Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen Hospitals NHS Trust Gastroenterology Team
The gastroenterology team at the Royal Liverpool is the third team to use PKB to improve communication and access to information for their patients. They are joining the centre for sexual health and the AKU Patient Liaison service, who have been using PKB for 2 years.
Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust Neurostimulation Team
The Neurostimulation team at Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust are one of three teams who are piloting PKB. They are using the system to digitalize their risk assessment and improve their ability to remotely monitor and care for their patients.
Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust Haematology Team
We are proud to welcome the Haematology team to PKB. They are going to assess the benefits of remote consultations, remote symptom monitoring and digitalising care plans.
Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust Recovery Team 2 (Mental Health)
The ability to track physical health on PKB through healthcare measurements entered by the patient or their team, or integrated from one of our many partner devices and applications, can provide a fuller picture of a patient’s wellbeing and progress. Recovery Team 2 at Derbyshire Healthcare Foundation Trust is one of a wide range of mental health pilots we are conducting to explore the benefits that improved access to information can have between teams involved in complex care.
North Manchester General Hospital Hepatitis B Team
Following the successful pilot of PKB with the HIV team at North Manchester General Hospital, we are delighted to welcome the Hepatitis B team. They are using PKB to improve communication, reduce unnecessary appointments and provide resources digitally.

In this op-ed, Dr. Lloyd Humphreys, VP of Business Development at Patients Know Best, writes why it’s difficult for innovative companies like Patients Know Best to scale up, how we’re doing it but also why we must.

We are excited to announce the following sites that have just gone live in the past month!
Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust IBD Team
We first partnered with Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust to improve the quality of care and diagnosis for neurological patients, which went live back in March 2015. They have since been shortlisted for the HSJ award. Due to the success of the pilot, we are pleased that Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust have rolled out PKB for their inflammatory bowel disease patients in September!
ABMU Prostate Cancer Team at Morriston Hospital
This is our third partnership with ABMU and the first at Morriston Hospital. We partnered with ABMU dermatology and IBD teams, which went live six months ago. This past September, PKB is being rolled out for prostate cancer patients to provide improved follow up management. If you’re interested in more information, please contact ABMU Prostate Cancer Team at Morriston Hospital or us about their use of PKB.
St James’ HIV Team
The HIV team at St. James’ is the first team in Ireland to go live with PKB. This pilot aims to improve patient experience and reduce waiting times for HIV patients. If you would like to learn more about it, please contact St. James’ HIV Team or us.
If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
Peterborough and Stamford NHS Trust have been working with PKB to improve the quality of diagnosis and treatment for neurological patients.
Since March 2015, neurological patients have been utilizing one aspect of the PKB medical record by uploading videos of seizures and sharing those videos with healthcare professionals without having to be present. A useful tool to support the diagnosis of epilepsy, the PKB platform allows patients to quickly and securely inform health professionals of not only one but several pieces of footage, which can help with diagnosis in a timely manner.
It’s improved our ability to discriminate between epilepsy and non-epilepsy. And where it is epilepsy, it’s improved our ability to treat it. – Dr. Richard Brown, consultant paediatrician
Given the success of this pilot, Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals will be rolling out PKB for their inflammatory bowel disease patients as well.
Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals have been shortlisted for the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Award for their innovative approach in using Patients Know Best.
