Our mission

We seek to empower people everywhere to take control of their healthcare experience. We help them navigate their journey by listening to and understanding their concerns and needs, and advising which healthcare professionals will be best placed to help them. We provide access to the most comprehensive and up-to-date research so that patients and their families can make informed choices as quickly as possible and with minimum impact on their day-to-day lives.

Introducing Holding Your Hand

In the UK alone, there are 10 million people who have long term illnesses that need management, including diabetes, asthma, cancer and heart issues. Holding Your Hand was founded to address the way these health problems impact our quality of life. As a population we strive to be empowered but it is not easy and can feel very lonely. That’s why we do what we do.

We have seen our clients feel lighter, more involved, better informed, and well supported. Health issues often put stress on and add tension to personal relationships. Having an impartial adviser can help eliminate some of this stress and tension, leaving patients and their families to concentrate on the things that really matter.

What do we do?

Our trained Medical Navigators will guide and support you or a member of your family through your healthcare journey, allowing you to make informed choices by providing access to tools and resources, anywhere, anytime.

How do we do this?

Our trained advisers provide a patient advocacy service that finds the best treatment available to you and guides you through the entire process. We take away the burden of administration, help with fact finding, clarify conflicting choices and assist in appointment bookings, empowering you to make informed choices.
