About Alcidion

We’re transforming healthcare together

Alcidion develops innovative solutions that address the problems challenging healthcare organisations around the world today. We create modern technologies to provide the answers. We aim to improve the experience of patients and clinicians and directly contribute to the effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare operations – creating a cycle of continuous improvement.

We love the way we work

Our people are inspired by a shared sense of purpose. We are proud of what we do. Empowered to solve problems, each person’s work contributes to the transformation of healthcare delivery.

Flexible working is welcomed and encouraged. It’s not where, when or how we work that’s important, it is the contribution each of us make.

Also on offer are:

  • A range of leave options, including gender neutral paid parental leave and miscarriage leave
  • Health and wellbeing schemes and initiatives
  • Financial perks and discounts
