Q doctor provides hundreds of NHS GP practices, urgent care providers and hospitals with the technology needed to have safe, secure, easy to use video consultations with patients.
Impact Objective: faster and more effective diagnosis through patient access to primary and secondary healthcare through a safe and efficient digital platform
Q doctor works with the primary and urgent care providers nationwide and is an NHS Digital approved supplier for video consultation. The Q doctor platform enables greater virtual access to NHS care in GP practices, hospitals, and the community via 111 and community clinics, helping to keep patients and clinicians safe.
Manish Miglani, who led this investment for Nesta said:
“Nesta’s health investment activity focuses on innovative and scalable technologies that improve health outcomes, reduce health inequalities, and help patients get more tailored care. Q doctor already assists NHS clinicians and patients by integrating with existing NHS systems, rather than seeking to replace NHS GP services: this was key to our investment decision.”
Chris Whittle, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Q doctor added:
“Q doctor has achieved national firsts in supporting 111, outpatient departments, hundreds of GP practices, and most recently London’s first COVID-19 Isolation Centre at Heathrow. Our solution, from a clinically led company, is tried and tested across the NHS; this funding is well timed to resource our rapid growth, as we support the NHS through the COVID-19 crisis at scale”.
