Private doctors - about us

Our founders have all worked in the NHS and seen first hand the problems that the NHS and patients face. Through no fault of its own, the NHS is struggling to cope with rising demand from demographic shifts, more complex disease and a funding squeeze.
Far from trying to be a substitute for the NHS, MedicSpot hopes to complement the NHS to ensure that patients get high quality care at a time and place of their choosing. This will improve patient experience and outcomes – leading to a healthier nation.
