About

“We create innovative healthcare software.”

We aim to be special

Our founder, Adam Towler, was working as a dermatologist in the NHS when he became frustrated with the way patient records were handled within hospital trusts. The systems did not support his work, and were not really fit for purpose. This problem sparked the initial idea for Epro.

We’re not just another software development company. We aim to produce the very best software for hospital trusts, to make a real difference to staff and ultimately patient experiences. This is no small task: our long-term goal is for clinical staff to see Epro as being one of the reasons they choose to work at a trust.

Our strategy

Epro’s success is down to our belief that medical software needs to be world class: designed to meet user needs and simplify administration work within hospitals. We believe that by designing the best systems for staff we can make a significant difference to the general experience people have when they use a hospital trust.

This means our software has to be built to the best standards. We have a lot of pride in the quality of our code, and the skills our team has.

Culture

We are passionate about building the best software we can. We have high expectations of our team members, and they in turn have high standards. We are dedicated to improving our working environment and culture, and are always looking for new things to try that will interest our team.

It’s not all about work though, we all get on really well so we often go to the pub after work or out for a meal together. We also try to schedule things to do outside of work, like paintball and bowling.
