How it all began
Over the years of his experience as a Doctor in both the NHS and private sector, Raja, one of our founders noted that the waiting times in England for patients to see a doctor and get the appropriate investigations and treatment was appalling. This led to a lot of frustration and anxiety in patients which was very difficult for Raja as a doctor to watch as people fell prey to the system. Around the world even people in developing countries can see GPs and Specialists on the same day but here in England our people suffer despite having the best National Health Service in the world. Patients struggling for weeks without appointments was something Raja simply couldn’t understand. Despite the presence of appointment booking platforms in the industry, the problem of long waiting times continues to exist. Most of the websites have a number to call to book, which can make it time consuming to find an available slot at a facility near you.
Raja and his wife Poobashni continued to face patients with this problem andsought to fix it, knowing the difference it would make in patients’ lives. Having a good understanding of Information Technology, they have designed a fast and intuitive online marketplace that will transform healthcare by bringing patients and doctors closer than ever before.
Our team of creative and driven individuals come together, to create a healthcare search engine that will facilitatethe patient’s accessibility to world-class healthcare in a quick, flexible and convenient manner at highly affordable prices, with the mission to be the first and independent source of information for finding the ideal healthcare specialist suited to one’s needs.
At AppointmentHub, we value innovation and we are using technological advances to make sure that you are never more than 3 clicks away from booking a consultation with a GP or a specialist. Every patient who sees a doctor through our platform is essentially making way for others on the waiting list to see their NHS doctors quicker – thus creating a win-win situation.
