Medical safety analytics firm opens centre in Scotland

Data analytics firm Spiritus Partners is to invest £3.4m in a new programming and development centre in Scotland focused on medical safety. Spiritus is supported by a Scottish Enterprise grant of £500,000 enabling the creation of 23 new jobs, of which 20 will be highly skilled tech positions.

It is one of three US companies to announce investments in Scotland, with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon commenting: “The United States is Scotland’s biggest source of inward investment and, in the wake of Article 50 being triggered and the risk of a hard Brexit, it is vital we continue to build on the success of our current business relationship with the US.

“Scotland remains open for business and I’m delighted these companies have chosen to expand here and it further demonstrates our position as a prime location for inward investment.”
