Is Forward only for clinical staff?
Forward was created to empower health professionals to spend more time with their patients, doing the things that matter. Forward has been designed to be a secure instant messaging tool so that health professionals can safely discuss patient details with the appropriate security levels.

Similarly, some of the hospitals rollout Forward for portering duties too, streamlining communication and providing more efficient care.
Forward is a tool that teams, departments and hospitals can use to solve their communication challenges. The Forward team are here to support and discuss ways Forward has worked well in similar departments or hospitals to you 👉🏼 firstname.lastname@example.org 👩🏼💻👨🏾💻
