360º personalised care to improve health outcomes for NHS cancer patients and reduce healthcare utilisation
Cancer costs the NHS an
avoidable £1Bn every year
Due to workforce and capacity constraints, only 10% of patients have access to prehab to help them recover better.
The cost of setting up at in-person service is very expensive – c£1m for every 1,000 patients.
This means many patients are unable to access the support they require. Not only does this increase the risk of complications, but it increases the cost of healthcare utilisation.
Alvie is a cost effective, integrated solution
to help your patients recover better
Our digital-first, modular approach to personalised care allows us to offer a cost effective solution vs face-to-face, in-hospital services.
We can reach 90%+ of your cancer population, no matter what the diagnosis, treatment pathway or intent.
How do we help people recover better?
Alvie 360 is a health coaching programme that lasts up to 10 weeks.
Using real data and regular coach check-ins, we build and refine a risk-stratified and 360° – physical and psychological – individual health profile.
This allows us to actively identify and manage risks before they escalate, hyper-personalise the coaching recommendations, offer consistent encouragement and motivation, safely monitor progress and intervene with expert clinical support as required.
Our work to date with the NHS
Over 1,000 patients supported across 5 Cancer Alliances and 14 NHS trusts
17 tumour sites
All treatment pathways (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapy) and intent (curative, palliative)
30% patients supported via non-app pathway (for non-smartphone users)
Wearables provided (where patient had no smartphone / wearable)
From the outset, the Alvie team have been remarkable to work with. Their understanding of the difficulties of introducing innovative systems into an already overloaded health system is exceptional. They instinctively knew the right level of support our system required and helped us develop a tailored approach to suit the needs of our patients

We are proud of how we have helped over 1,000 patients recover better
During my treatment, only a few individuals showed genuine concern for my wellbeing. Most were interested in knowing about my symptoms, side-effects and scheduling appointments for scans and treatment. Don’t get me wrong, this is important, of course it is, but as an individual I felt emotionally numb. It seemed as though I was being processed, Iosing control and struggling to find a way through.
At times, I would sugarcoat my experience for others. I didn't want to burden them or dampen their spirits. Unfortunately, this only worsened my feelings of isolation and loss.
When I met Alvie, I felt supported. I had a personal coach who guided me towards specific goals and provided a structured approach that was really helpful. She reassured me, saying it’s ok to try again when you feel you can do it and not to be too hard on myself if I stumble. The whole programme has helped me. They provided what I needed, when I needed it.
By dedicating a little time each day and focusing on these aspects, I know I'm heading in the right direction. Yes, I have become more physically active, and my eating habits have improved. But it’s more than that. They helped me feel like me again
The financial case for making Alvie part of your personalised care toolkit
Alvie is significantly lower cost than building an in-hospital prehab service which typically costs c£1m for every 1,000 patients.
And we deliver demonstrable costs savings through improved healthcare utilisation on average £1,263 per patient. This creates a compelling ROI.
Our peer reviewed clinical research in cancer care
Peri-habilitation / pæɾi-həˌbɪlɪˈteɪʃən is the care of patients before, during and after treatment.
It provides people with a physical and psychological buffer to withstand the effects of treatment, help them recover better and lower the costs of healthcare utilisation.
