Growth and expansion
The online pharmacy and prescription market is a rapidly emerging sector in the UK, driven by increasing NHS waiting times, as well as surgery opening times being unsuitable for people’s busier lifestyles. This has resulted in an increased demand for alternative methods of accessing medical advice and treatments, with most people welcoming the greater convenience offered by digital healthcare platforms. GPS meets these customer demands, providing them the ability to tailor healthcare needs around work and family commitments, operating from 7am to 8pm, 7 days a week.
Patients using the digital service are able select their preferred affiliated local General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) registered pharmacy for prescription dispensing and doctors are able to provide value-added healthcare services such as fit to work notes, referral letters and vaccines. Over 1000 pharmacies in the UK have already become members.
The funding will be used by the Company to further develop the functionality of its existing platform, grow its independent pharmacy and enterprise customer base, as well as drive patient enrolment. Over 60 new roles will be created - a five-fold increase in the team’s current size.
