About Julia

In early 2019, dietitian Jen was struggling to keep on top of her CPD. She turned to husband Joel, who runs software company Switchplane, for advice...

"CPD is an absolute nightmare. There's no proper tools to manage it so I end up collecting random bits of evidence all over the place - on my desk, in my email, on my phone. I dread getting audited by the HCPC because producing the CPD report would be extremely stressful. Can you do something about it?"

Joel brought in Switchplane's Head of Marketing, Garry, to start researching how Allied Health Professionals manage their CPD. Garry recruited 50 AHPs from all professions and heard the same message over and over again:

  • I've got nowhere to keep my CPD
  • My employer doesn't give me CPD time
  • My CPD ends up scattered all over the place
  • I forget what CPD I did
  • I'm scared to open the HCPC renewal letter

It was evident that CPD was a nightmare and that there was nothing out there that could help. And so Switchplane decided to create a CPD management app for AHPs.

From there, Julia was born. Built from the ground up in conjunction with a small group of AHPs, and after a year of feedback, discussion, and development, Julia is finally ready to launch!

No more CPD nightmares. With Julia, you can record evidence, reflect on it on a regular basis, and use it to build a report if you are audited.

Julia is built for you. If you think it is missing anything, please get in touch with our help team. We review all feedback and use it to make managing your CPD even easier.

"And why is it called Julia?", you ask. Well, as NHS tech is typically clunky and corporate, we wanted Julia to be a friendly alternative with a personality. Julia is there to help you instead of getting in the way.
