For this reason Refer-all was founded in 2009 by software developer, Mike Carey and public health specialist, Stuart Stokes.
The idea was simple – receive online referrals to a scheme that would then work with a patient to help them improve their health. It didn’t matter what the scheme was, smoking cessation, weight management, exercise or housing, the one thing that Stuart wanted to master was excellent patient care, 360 degree feedback and an improvement in efficiency. A simple idea with an opportunity to help transform people’s health.
Their website states:
