Doctor Care Anywhere (DOC) has teamed up with Nuffield Health to develop
virtual and face-to-face GP services across the U.K.

This partnership will give patients access to Doctor Care Anywhere’s 24/7 virtual GP service and Nuffled Health’s face-to-face GPs in one digital platform.

The platform is aiming to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2021 and represents the first nationally integrated primary care proposition in the U.K.

It is estimated that around 70 per cent of primary care consultations can be conducted virtually. By integrating an in-person GP service, Doctor Care will be able to increase its scope and volume of primary care consultations offered to patients.

This new approach will allow patients to choose how, when and where they access primary care.

“We are delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Doctor Care Anywhere to offer customers access to a national network of virtual and face-to-face GPs,” Nuffield Health Medical Director Dr Davina Deniszczyc said.

“The pandemic has demonstrated the need for accessible health services and
through this partnership we are now able to offer everyone the choice of how they access their GP, whenever they need to.”

Founder and CEO of Doctor Care Anywhere Dr Bayju Thakar is also excited to deepen the company’s relationship with Nuffield Health.

“This new collaboration, the first joined-up service of its type in the U.K, will bring the benefits of digital healthcare to the face-to-face primary care setting and allow individuals more control over how, where and when they choose to access primary care services,” he said.

“This represents a true shift in how healthcare can and should be delivered on a national scale. At a time when there is huge pressure on primary care systems across the U.K. (the collaboration)offers real improvements in terms of convenience, cost and quality of the care experience.”

More information on the partnership will be released to the market once the full contract is signed.

Doctor Care is up 11.1 per cent on the market this morning and is trading at 90 cents per share at 12:02 am AEST.
