Larry Gould, founder and executive chairman of thebigword said: “In the UK, the demand for health and well being care continues to grow, driven by an ageing population and increasingly unhealthy lifestyles.

“Our expert linguists will help Nuffield Health in promoting health and delivering connected medical care to its customers in their preferred language.

“In a healthcare setting, being able to communicate effectively can make all the difference between life and death.

“This win strengthens our position as a leading language services provider in the healthcare industry and wellbeing market.”
