We are on a mission to enable the NHS to reach its fullest potential, utilising innovation, digital transformation, data analytics and enhanced operational management to cut waiting lists, improve patient pathways and generate better outcomes.

I founded Acumentice in 2014, with a vision to add sustainable value to the NHS and improve patient outcomes using my experience of working on the frontline. Over the years, more NHS frontline leaders have joined our movement to deliver bespoke, high-quality, high-value and data-led solutions to serve our passion to improve healthcare for all.

Acumentice began largely as a one-woman operation delivering elective care consultancy services, but we’ve grown to deliver a much wider breadth of services and products – and I have a fantastic, talented and diverse team with me on this journey. As we’ve grown, so has our commitment to supporting both healthcare staff and patients across all sectors of the NHS in as many ways as we can.

We’re very proud of our NHS experience in the company. By bringing decades of frontline expertise and understanding of the complexities that are unique to NHS systems, we can deliver specific and sustainable solutions at pace rather than fleeting template fixes. We also have a focus on playing our part in reducing health inequalities whilst becoming socially and environmentally responsible.

Our mission of creating a healthier NHS defines all we do. Our philosophy is never to sit still, but to innovate, improve and inspire.

Karina Malhotra,
Founder and Managing Director


Our values, created by our passionate and fast-growing team, sit at the heart of Acumentice. They inform everything we do and enable our clients and partners to know first-hand who they are working with.

In It Together – we have a shared passion for a healthier NHS, trusting and supporting each other to overcome challenges. We all have a voice and listen to each other to help pool our expertise.

Brave – we speak with candour (but always with sensitivity and kindness), we are clear and transparent, and we show initiative to take action when required.

Visionary – we operate with real attention to detail, using our decades of experience in the NHS to offer the best possible (considered and sustainable) solutions. Sustainability is absolutely central to our decision-making – both for the longevity of our solutions and of the planet.

Dynamic – we are nimble and responsive to change, comfortable working both at pace and under pressure. Our autonomy, transparency and trust enable us to pivot quickly without unnecessary bureaucracy.


We believe that smaller companies have just as much of a role to play in creating a fairer, more sustainable world. This is why we have committed ourselves to a number of sustainability and corporate social responsibility goals.
