Hugh Symons Information Management: About Us

The Company

Hugh Symons NHS Document Scanning Services is the division of Hugh Symons Information Management Ltd (HSIM) dedicated to provide scanning services to the NHS.

HSIM was founded in 1974, in Bournemouth and initially provided a microfilm service to all market sectors across the South and West of England. This steadily developed into a country wide service.

In the early 1990s HSIM’s Board of Directors adopted the philosophy of “investment, development and progression”. A result HSIM was among the forerunners to establish itself in the electronic document management marketplace developing not only scanning bureaux but also document management software.

In particular, a decision was made to direct the company to become the specialist provider to the NHS. This management philosophy has prevailed Hugh Symons has grown to become one of the leading information management providing services to the NHS.
