About us

The Eva team is comprised of three organisations at the forefront of change and innovation in their respective industries: expert healthcare investigation consultants Verita, global technology specialists AlfaPeople, and Microsoft.

Verita

Verita

Verita is the UK’s leading provider of serious incident investigation consultancy. With over 17 years’ experience and a team of expert advisors, our work includes the 2012 NHS-based investigations into Jimmy Savile. We were also invited by Spire Healthcare to review their governance arrangements following the scandal surrounding the surgical practice of Mr Ian Paterson. Our experience from these and countless other healthcare investigations have informed the development of the Eva Investigation Application.
