Founded in 2013 and live to patients since 2015, Push Doctor was the brainchild of Eren Ozagir and Matt Elcock. After falling ill on a business trip, it didn't make sense that our founder would have to wait until he was back home to see a doctor. None of his symptoms required a physical examination, so why couldn't he speak to a GP over video? With that flash of inspiration, Push Doctor was born.
Since formally launching in 2015, we have gone from strength to strength – gaining three rounds of investment in our first two years, a 'good' rating from the CQC in our most recent inspection, and enabling the NHS to offer video consultations to patients for the first time. Long story short, we have continually pushed the envelope in digital healthcare, aren't planning on stopping any time soon.
We want to offer access to GPs entirely on the patient's terms. Patients being able to book an appointment online, or through our app, and be seen by an online doctor whenever they feel comfortable, whenever suits them – fundamentally changing our relationship with healthcare. We want to go even further, though.
