37. The GP Service
The first platform in the United Kingdom to allow patients to access a doctor from the comfort of their own home
Founder: Suleman Sacranie and Atul Devani
Getting an appointment with a GP is easier said than done – especially with a global pandemic going on!
Suleman Sacranie and Atul Devani have created a solution: The GP Service. The GP Service has been created in partnership with the NHS and pharmacies, and offers patients access to a doctor, without even having to leave the house.
The GP Service essentially turns pharmacy consultation rooms into virtual GP surgeries, so patients can not only get a call with a GP (via the app), but also arrange for any medication to be sent directly from the pharmacy itself.
Currently, over 1,200 patients are being seen per day via the app and the platform is said to increase GP efficiency by 60%. It has 1,600 pharmacy partners on board, a B2B arm that supports companies such as Aliianz and Coop, and is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. When it comes to health – they have all of the important boxes ticked.
The GP Service is on a mission to be the first platform that provides an end-to-end connection between patient, doctor, and pharmacy. And since the NHS recently announced that 25% of GP consultations need to be online by 2022, it’s The GP Service’s time to shine!
