Health and care technology firm, Tunstall Healthcare, opened its new hub in St Peter’s Square, Manchester today.

The official ceremony, attended by Lord Mayor of Manchester, Donna Ludford, saw Tunstall’s senior team, including group CEO Emil Peters, and UK and Ireland managing director Gavin Bashar, open the new office in one of the UK’s most prominent Northern cities.

Tunstall, which is celebrating its 65th year, is currently recruiting for a range of hybrid working positions that will be based from the new hub in Manchester, which will work with existing tech teams based in Yorkshire, Sweden, Germany and Spain.

Emil Peters said: “This is undoubtedly a huge and exciting milestone for Tunstall as we open our latest UK office space, in the renowned business and technology hub of Manchester.

“Our new base is the perfect location to serve our customers across the country and in the North West, as well as attracting new talent to the Tunstall brand.

“A career at Tunstall gives candidates the opportunity to make a real difference in the health and care sector by realising the potential of technology to empower people to have more choice over how they live their lives. Our Manchester base will help us to attract some of the brightest talent in the sector to help us drive our exciting technology roadmap forward, and I’m looking forward to welcoming new colleagues to the business.”

Established in 1957, Tunstall has grown substantially and evolved from an equipment provider to a software solution and technology company that provides telecare and telehealth managed services.

In this time, it has almost doubled the number of users supported by its systems, while increasing its geographic footprint across Europe.

Gavin Bashar said: “This new office space forms part of our strategy for growth, driving development of the pioneering Tunstall business as we expand. We are committed to our goals to help our customers meet the needs of their local populations, and this new office will help us achieve just that as we build upon our UK team.”

Gary Steen, chief operating officer at Tunstall UK, said: “At Tunstall, we put our people first and invest in their professional development. By expanding our base across the North we will be able to continue our success as a business while forging ahead as the market leader in our sector.”

Tunstall Group works with health, care and housing providers around the world and supports more than five million people through technology.

Its technology and service offerings allow its customers to deploy new models of community-based health and care delivery that are more integrated, personalised and proactive.
