Now Healthcare Group says it will treat more than 15 million NHS patients as it launches a primary healthcare and pharmacy platform.
Working with qualifying NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, surgeries and practices, Now NHS will deliver more convenient and accessible healthcare to patients with chronic care conditions.
The care will be free of charge for the patients and delivered through the “all-in-one” primary care mobile app and online service.
“We are incredibly proud to be introducing what is truly a game-changing platform for the healthcare industry,” said Lee Dentith, CEO and founder of Now Healthcare Group.
“By providing revolutionary access to convenient healthcare and medicine delivery to over 15m individuals, Now NHS will empower people to manage their own healthcare through our industry-leading technology, whilst reducing the strain on our country’s increasingly overstretched CCGs, surgeries and GP practices.”
Salford-based Now Healthcare Group says Now NHS is set to revolutionise the way that millions of people across the UK access care and medicines, providing an end-to-end healthcare solution to bring convenience and accessibility back to the industry.
It says the model supports the NHS Five Year Forward View implementation and lowers the number of face-to-face consultations as well as dependence on acute urgent and emergency care in hospital.
The Now NHS service is set to launch in mid-September, backed by a heavyweight multi-format media campaign targeting specific chronic care patient groups.
The team behind it will be at the upcoming NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo on 11/12 September at Manchester Central.
Free pilot schemes for the service are currently being accepted, with spaces limited due to extraordinary demand.
