... the NHS.
This astounding fact highlights the opportunity for even simple digital technology to revolutionise healthcare.
Our portfolio company Push Doctor is using (by today's standards) relatively straightforward video chat technology to give patients on-demand access to a doctor.
Yet simple technology can have big impacts on healthcare outcomes for patients. In a world where waiting times to see a GP on the NHS are 13 days, being able to get medical advice and treatment almost instantly has huge benefits.
It is great to see this impact recognised by the Growth Investor Awards, who have shortlisted Push Doctor for Most Impactful Investment.
Oxford Capital’s investment in Push Doctor has been shortlisted for Most Impactful Investment at the 2017 Growth Investor Awards. Led by chief executive Eren Ozagir, Push Doctor is a digital health business offering consumers on-demand video consultations with UK registered GPs. Oxford Capital first invested in Push Doctor in December 2015.
