Benefits to you
With many employers facing a constant battle to balance staff sickness and GP appointments with the productivity of their business, the Dr Now® platform has been built with these needs catered for. Our doctors can provide real-time data analytics to help your business team-card for the future by analysing illness and sickness trends, so you can be better prepared for situations such as the flu season gathering pace. Dr Now ® offers the reassurance of access to a qualified GP in the palm of your staff’s hands all year round, and eases pressure on existing staff and management by providing a professional service with quality medication delivered straight to your ill employees.
Dr Now ® can help your business tackle staff sickness, which has a hugely detrimental effect on companies around the world:
- Staff sickness collectively costs UK businesses alone a staggering £29 billion a year
- Average annual cost of £595 per absent employee

A World First
The revolutionary Dr Now ® platform is the world’s first healthcare application to offer the delivery of medicines and prescriptions to a patient’s home or office directly from a remote, mobile-based consultation.
The experienced and fully-qualified Dr Now ® medical professionals are able to use text or video-based remote appointments to offer patients a full diagnosis of their primary healthcare concerns, with the required prescriptions available for instant dispatch at the touch of a button. With several delivery options available, Dr Now ® is able to guarantee next day delivery of medicines across the United Kingdom, or within 1 to 4 hours of diagnosis for those living or working in London.
The Fine Detail
The Dr Now ® platform has been built with the customer at the forefront of our thoughts, and we have developed our technology and product using the best that the world has to offer. All our doctors are required to be UK trained with General Medical Council Registration (verified via the GMC website) and are listed on the GP specialist register. All doctors also have full membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners and are personally interviewed by clinical lead doctor, Dr Andrew Thornber.
With client satisfaction paramount, our integrated feedback forms can track the satisfaction levels of our users, ensuring that the Dr Now ® platform continuously improves whilst we monitor the quality rating of our doctors. All calls are hosted in a fully secure encrypted cloud and are kept on file for six years.
Corporate usage data on sickness levels group and department-wise can be provided to both independent companies and private healthcare organisations on a quarterly or real time basis, enabling Dr Now ® clients to identify health trends and areas where early intervention and prevention would be beneficial.
