IW Capital are pleased to announce a £2 million investment in GPDQ, an on-demand GP service, available both virtually and in-person. We had an overwhelming demand from our investor base to support this GPDQ raise despite widespread economic uncertainty, and this demonstrates the value of private capital in ensuring that innovative SMEs can still access the funding they need to grow.
The investment also shows the importance of private investors in growing businesses that can have an impact on national and global issues such as COVID-19.
GPDQ delivers outstanding CQC-certified primary healthcare services by mobilising innovative NHS GPs, nurses, pharmacists and other specialists to meet patient demand right across the UK. As the leading multi-channel doctor-on-demand service, GPDQ has been using its technology platform to connect its extensive network of clinicians with thousands of NHS and private patients through home visits, in-clinic or via video since 2015.
The GP community has commended GPDQ’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Anshumen Bhagat for his focus on retaining doctors within the NHS and successfully delivering an improved community-based primary care model as he continues to rise through the GP ‘Pulse Power 50’ each year.
Already well-established as the UK’s leading in-community visiting service, GPDQ has been proud to play its part in supporting the NHS during the current pandemic. GPDQ has rapidly set-up dedicated Covid-19 visiting services in partnership with GP federations and clinical commissioning groups to support the most vulnerable patients at home. GPDQ’s remote services can also be accessed by 6,500 NHS GP practices via the iPLATO platform, enabling portfolio GPs and doctors in self-isolation to continue to see patients on the front line.
