London-based WEP Group Holdings, a specialist contract research organisation which delivers lifesaving drugs to patients that have an unmet clinical need, is making a strategic investment in Wren Healthcare, a clinical nursing healthcare provider in the EU.
Wren works with key industry stakeholders across Europe, including national health services, pharmaceutical companies, and private healthcare providers, to provide and administer treatments in the patient home. Its team of registered nurses have years of clinical homecare experience, ensuring care is delivered to exacting protocols and drug summaries of product characteristics.
Under the new agreement, Wren will become part of the WEP team, allowing WEP’s patients, partners, and customers access to home nursing care services, such as: at home patient support for complex drug treatment and associated procedures; home nursing support for clinical trials and expanded access programmes; clinical and disease area education; and provision of cross-therapy nursing support across multiple clinical specialities.
Jas Khera, managing director of WEP Clinical, said: “WEP and Wren’s shared philosophy of putting the patient and customer first make this new partnership a very exciting step forward for us at WEP. The energy of the Wren team, combined with WEP’s long history and track record, will create a solid platform for future growth. We look forward to providing these new services that will help patients lead healthier and more fulfilling lives.”
Iain Campbell, managing director of Wren Healthcare, added: “Recent challenges within healthcare have highlighted the importance of clinical homecare. The Wren Healthcare team remain committed to providing evidence-based patient centric care that continues to positively impact those we support. WEP’s partnership, shared values, proven industry knowledge and experience further enhances the clinical services provided by Wren Healthcare. We look forward to future collaborations building a platform for growth and shared philosophy of helping patients lead healthier and more fulfilling lives.”
Wren is headquartered in Sandwich, Kent.
