Peter Whawell

Chief Executive Officer, Proxximos

Peter co-led the creation of the NHS Covid-19 App.  A year later he left the Civil Service to develop that technology further and founded Proxximos.  The company created a digital contact tracing solution for use in hospitals and care homes.  These environments have chronic issues with communicable disease outbreaks, which consume beds, drive up costs, and cause poor patient outcomes.  There is a virtuous circle to explore – digital contact tracing can highlight who to test, and testing can trigger digital contact tracing.
