On-Demand Healthcare Helps Patients Get A Doctor To Their Door

Delivery apps have become increasingly popular in recent years, making almost everything accessible through our smartphones. That has now extended to healthcare with GPDQ or GP Delivered Quickly, an innovative healthcare iOS and Android app that allows patients living in central London to request a general practitioner to their door within 90 minutes.


It was founded by the National Health Service (NHS) and GP Dr. Anshumen Bhagat with the intention of creating a more accessible and affordable private primary care solution. The company is registered with the Care Quality Commission, the medical profession’s independent regulator, and uses doctors who are trained in the UK and registered with the General Medical Council.


The app includes a map that shows nearby doctors and once the user selects a GP, they can select their location and receive an estimate and expected arrival time. Patients can see a profile and photo of the doctor they will be receiving treatment from, along with a rating and reviews from former patients. After the appointment, users are encouraged to rate and review their experience. Appointments are available seven days a week from 8am to 11pm, starting at £120 for a 25-minute consultation, which increases if patients want extra time or to use the platform’s two-hour medication delivery service. Payments are made through the app using a debit card or credit card.


GPDQ is currently only available in central London but will be expanding to more UK cities soon.
