Doctify is a company based in Camden Town - a website and app launched in 2015 which enables patients to search, compare and book private doctors and health professionals in the United Kingdom.[1] It features reviews written by patients and recommendations by other health professionals.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The company has a founding team formed by a former business consultant and two doctors. The Doctify office is in London, with a staff of 50+.[3] Family office took over the business.[4] [5] [6] [7][8][9]

In December 2016, it secured substantial series A funding from Amadeus Capital.[10]

It combined with VitalityHealth in 2019 to develop the ‘Vitality Specialist Finder', a website that allows members to search for doctors by specialty, rating and location, book appointments and rate the doctors. [11]

Services[edit | edit source]

Clinicians can use the software to schedule their appointments.[10] It covers 47 different specialties and is accessible on web or mobile devices. It focuses on around 30,000 consultant doctors who operate within the private sector.[12] 90% of them also work in the NHS.[13]

It is said that its symptom checkers and video consultations take pressure off GPs during the COVID-19 pandemic in England.[14]
