Pando - Connecting Healthcare

The Gallery is finally here!

We are starting the new year with a new name - Forward is now called Pando!

Since we first started building an app which aimed to improve healthcare communication a lot of things have changed - our users are not only on hospital wards and they are collaborating in ways we couldn’t have predicted. Our network is growing and we are proud to create an infrastructure that enables information to be shared securely.
Pando - a species of Aspen and the largest living organism known. On the surface, Pando looks like many individual trees, but underground it becomes clear that it is a single connected system - just like the network we have been creating together with our users.

Already used by 150 NHS hospitals and CCGs, Pando is a secure messaging app that helps you collaborate effectively with your team and other healthcare professionals.

Pando offers secure instant messaging, including photo capturing and exporting directly to your NHS email. You are able to manage patient cards and your own tasks to make your workflow easier.

Connect with anyone in your Trust, or across the wider region and get access to the information you need immediately - without having to go through a lengthy process.

We want to make sure that you are able to switch off at the end of the shift. This is why Pando offers you the option to mark yourself unavailable, making sure that you are not disturbed.

Pando is PIN protected which means that there is a barrier between your personal and work data, making it safe to use on your personal device. All data is stored in the cloud on our ISO-certified servers.

Pando complies with the latest NHS Digital and NHS England guidance on the use of instant messaging in the NHS. It is Cyber Essentials certified and complies with all the relevant security standards under the Data Security and Protection (DSP) Toolkit and GDPR. Making sure that the data is kept safe is our priority, so you can do your best work possible without worrying.
