Push Doctor is a startup based in the UK that enables users to book appointments with doctor for a video consultation over their app. Push Doctor and its founders have long been evangelists of healthy living, telemedicine and remote treatment of medical conditions. The healthtech company founded in 2013 has raised 26.1 million dollars in Series B funding.
Investors in this round were Accelerated Digital Ventures, Draper Esprit, along with European VCs Oxford Capital, Partech Ventures, and Seventure Partners. Push Doctor has so far raised 37.5 million dollars.
Push Doctor doesn’t want to limit itself to telemedicine but is now looking at repositioning and expanding its services to cover a wider area in digital health
While the healthtech app accords access to thousands of ‘Push Doctors’ – general physicians who are also part the UK’s National health Service (NHS), the startup has secured approval to give prescriptions, doctor referrals, and assist with managing patient prescriptions.
Push Doctor cofounder and CEO Eren Ozagir would also like the app to expand to offering interactive content that can help a patient manage a chronic or even short term illness on their own.
“No one before Push Doctor has provided consumers with access to a single digital health platform that combines responsive medicine and chronic condition management as well as fitness and nutritional conditioning,” Ozagir has said according to TechCrunch.
But there are other healthtech startups in the UK offering health and general wellness solutions such as Babylon, AI powered Ada Healthcare and Your.MD.
