Driving the Covid-19 rebound in healthcare


While technology is not a new concept for the health sector, patients have sometimes been reluctant to use it.

During the pandemic, however, financial restrictions and red tape were loosened which meant organisations could invest in digital to help meet demand as many services were made available online.

Virgin Media Business partnered up with the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) to understand the scale of these digital changes and their impact across the UK.

While the research in this report reveals that the pandemic accelerated digital progress in the health sector by more than four years, there is still plenty of pressure still on the NHS.

This means health organisations must now lean on digital technology to support them through a difficult period of transition for the sector. This continued investment in digital technology could bring a £6.4 billion uplift to GDP by 2025. An uplift that could rise to £53 billion by 2040.

But what do these numbers really mean? This health sector-focused report aims to help answer that question.
