Bespoke Healthcare named Small Business of the Year

Bespoke Healthcare

A Lancashire healthcare specialist has been given a shot in the arm after winning a major business award. 

Bespoke Healthcare won the Small Business Category at this year’s BIBAS – Lancashire’s most prestigious business awards — after being described by judges as ‘a truly inspirational business’. Bespoke Healthcare has grown at an average of 29 percent year on year and has 45 full and part time employees. The company was also shortlisted as Employer of the Year.

The BIBAS judges said: “Bespoke is a truly inspirational business that is transforming a sector with a clearly defined strategic vision.

“It is integrating innovative and transparent approach to proving cutting edge technology and services in a cost effective and caring way. This is visible in every area of the business. Bespoke Healthcare is a true credit to the business community of Lancashire.”

Based in Preston, Bespoke Healthcare is an independent provider of neurophysiology investigations and operates throughout the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. The company works with many NHS Trusts and independent hospitals and has treated almost 100,000 patients over the last decade.

Established in 2006 by Executive Chairman Gwam Rajiah and his wife Sara, the business is unique in that it is the only independent provider able to deliver the full range of neurophysiology services, including intraoperative monitoring relating to a number of complex surgical procedures.

Bespoke Healthcare also provides consultation and day case surgery for both the NHS and private health care patients from its base at Greater Lancashire Hospital which it opened three years ago. The Hospital, which also houses a Private GP surgery, offers a wide variety of therapies and treatments from ENT, Ophthalmology, Vascular and Plastic Surgery through to Sleep Disorders, Urology and Pain Management. Bespoke Healthcare helps the NHS reduce patient waiting times by giving them the opportunity to provide unique, cost effective and immediate services of a high clinical quality.

Bespoke’s Executive Chairman Gwam Rajiah commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised by our peers in the Lancashire business community — our very first contract was in the county 10 years ago and that helped us to get established. An award like this is testament to the hard work of the whole team for many years.”

“Looking ahead we are determined to build on this success. Our strategy is to develop a number of new services and expand into more specialised areas.”
