TPP is a Leeds based global digital health company. With over 6,000 organisations using our solutions to care for over 50 million patients, our software is used across all health and social care settings, including GPs, emergency departments, hospitals and mental health services. This means that wherever and whenever a patient needs care, a detailed and up-to-date record is available. No other company has a digital healthcare solution on this scale. Our database is one of the largest in the world. It processes a billion transactions daily – more than the London Stock Exchange and Visa combined.

TPP is committed to helping tackle global health challenges, working with governments to deliver the technology required for the future of healthcare.
TPP has been consistently recognised as an outstanding graduate employer. In both 2017 and 2018 we were awarded the “Top Company for Graduates to Work For” and for the last three years we have won the “Graduate Salary” category by the JobCrowd. We have also been named in the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list for both 2020 & 2021. We value natural ability, enthusiasm and the potential to learn over direct work experience.
