Top Track 250

Collaborative robots, known as “cobots”, were introduced to the UK care sector for the first time in a project led by this management consultancy, just before the pandemic. It subsequently helped manage the UK Ventilator Challenge and worked with NHS England to mobilise thousands of retired GPs. It is majority-owned by private equity firm Carlyle Group; current employees own the remainder. Chief executive Alan Middleton, 54, leads the group.
