Clearwater International advises Channel 3 Consulting on the management buy-out backed by Westbridge

Clearwater International has advised Channel 3 Consulting Ltd (Channel 3), a specialist consultancy which designs, implements and optimises digital transformation programmes for the health and care sector, on the management buy-out backed by Westbridge.

Established in 2009, Channel 3 helps its clients harness the power of technology to deliver better patient outcomes, improve services and operate more efficiently. Over the past decade, the company has worked with over 90 organisations across the NHS, private healthcare, local government, the Ministry of Defence and delivered over €568m (£500m) of ICT capital investments.

The demand for healthcare services is on the rise, driven by both a growing and ageing population, an increase in chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease and most recently COVID-19. The UK government has long recognised the role technology can play in meeting this rising demand to transform and deliver effective services.

The buyout was led by John Howard, who brings over 20 years’ of experience in management consultancy, healthcare and digital transformation, and who will be ably supported by Eleanor Rollason and Lucy McLintock.
