Changing lives through dependable healthcare, one community at at time.

Putting patients first
Often, people are forced to wait weeks to see their GP. During this time, conditions can worsen and become more difficult to treat. Medicspot wants everyone to have convenient access to the care they need to help build a healthier, happier nation. With over 100 locations across the UK offering same day appointments, we’re already on track to achieve this.
Using technology
Medicspot uses innovative technology to perform a full clinical examination of patients. Our GPs can listen to a patient’s heart and lungs, look down their throat and into their ears, take their blood pressure and oxygen readings, and measure their body temperature. This technology allows Medicspot to treat 70% more conditions than smartphone-based GP services.
Working with pharmacies
Medicspot shares the same vision as the NHS – to place pharmacies at the forefront of primary care. By working with over a hundred independent pharmacies across the UK, Medicspot is committed to improving the capabilities of a pharmacy and provide safer, more convenient care to patients.

Why we do what we do

Every day, 130,000 patients are unable to get an appointment with their NHS GP. Short-staffed and underfunded – through no fault of its own – the NHS is struggling to cope with rising demand. Patients are often forced to wait weeks to see their GP. Meanwhile, health conditions can deteriorate and become more difficult to treat. By putting technology and pharmacy at the forefront of primary care, Medicspot gives patients high-quality care at a time and place that suits them. With over 100 locations and counting across the UK, we’re building a healthier, happier nation.
