His Majesty The King invites ORCHA to Buckingham Palace
On Wednesday 16 November, ORCHA’s founding CEO, Liz Ashall-Payne, will attend a reception at Buckingham Palace. The event, initiated by King Charles, will recognise and celebrate the contribution of small businesses to the UK economy.
Liz said: “It’s not every day a Royal invitation lands on my desk and it’s an honour and a privilege to be able to meet His Majesty.
“My message will be that ORCHA is one of the many specialised small businesses in the digital health ecosystem – an industry set to be worth more than £320 billion by 2024,1 as it brings a major shift in how healthcare is delivered, making services sustainable for now and our future.
“I will also highlight how the UK is leading in the field, home to the largest number of digital health developers,2 and how nearly half of the UK public have used a digital health product as part of our day-to-day self-care.
“But most importantly, I will thank and highlight our NHS, social care and charity clients across the UK, who everyday use our assessment and activation products, helping us achieve our mission, of putting the power of digital health, safely into the hands of everyone who needs it.”
ORCHA has doubled its turnover every year since launch, and this year is set to treble its annual revenue. This fast growth has required an ongoing recruitment programme and staff numbers are now in excess of 120.
Liz concluded: “I feel so lucky to be attending, but ORCHA’s success wouldn’t be possible without the creativity and dedication across the digital health ecosystem, NHS and ORCHA colleagues, so I’m there to represent this amazing team.”
The UK’s first Digital Health Formulary and a Health App Library just for citizens
Following the rapid growth of the digital health sector, healthcare professionals and citizens now have distinct and different needs from their health app libraries – and so ORCHA has created products exactly tailored for each of these two audiences.

Researchers at ORCHA and the University of Warwick have identified that digital health products such as health apps could make a substantial contribution to tackling NHS urgent care pressures, by keeping patients out of hospital in the first place.
