Amadeus leads seven-figure Series A in medical appointments booking startup
Healthcare booking platform, Doctify, has announced it has closed a seven-figure Series A round as it looks to scaleup its UK operations.
The exact investment figure for the round has not been disclosed, but it has been revealed that global tech investor Amadeus Capital Partners led the million-pound plus round in the London-based healthtech startup.
Focusing on the private healthcare market, the tech firm aims to put patients in touch with doctors and clinicians in over 47 different specialisms, allowing them to compare reviews and prices, and book appointments through the Doctify platform.
Doctify Chief Executive Officer, Oliver Thomas, said this new round of growth funding would help the startup on its journey to become the biggest online medical booking platform.
He commented: “We are excited to announce our partnership with Amadeus Capital Partners and this round of growth funding.
“Amadeus’s investment will enable Doctify to improve the platform, scale-up UK operations and realise our aim of becoming the largest online medical appointments booking service.”
Co-Founder Stephanie Eltz also said that the firm had international growth aspirations which it was looking to instigate in the new year, and that Amadeus’ experience in the global digital healthcare sector would be a major boon to the startup’s expansion plans.
Pierre Socha, Principal, Amadeus Capital Partners, said: “Since its launch last year, Doctify has quickly become the most popular patient platform for booking specialist medical appointments in the UK.
“With healthcare systems the world over still principally paper-based and appointments made over the phone, Doctify is at the forefront of digitising patient bookings and is well-positioned to become both the market leader in the UK and an established player in Europe.”
