Medic Bleep is a secure and real-time communication solution. It enables doctors, nurses and the wider team to communicate and collaborate more effectively, accelerating productivity, reducing costs, and improving patient outcomes.
Replacing traditional pagers, switchboard, landline and fax methodology which exist across the NHS and healthcare system globally. These communication modalities are one way and one to one. Medic Bleep reimagines this for the healthcare system.
Our research suggests that poor inter team communication is the primary cause for 21% of patient harm; meaning a possible 400,000 episodes of potential harm a year, in the NHS alone.
There are over 1.1 million staff in the NHS alone and this is a challenge which clearly needs resolving; reflected by the 16,000 downloads by UK doctors and nurses to date.
We have been highly commended as the Healthcare Technology Solution of the Year by Industry journalists.
Our peer review paper and work has been cited by Department of Health as an example for Hospitals across the NHS when introducing the ban on pager use in the NHS for 2021 and mentioned in the House of Commons.
For regulatory reasons, we only allow communication to occur via the app if the Trust/CCG has signed up to its use across the organisation
We aim to solve this challenge for over 30% of the NHS in the next 3 years and work with healthcare providers globally.

He saw the challenges in communication and patients having to repeat information to the doctors and nurses. Although the NHS is one system, he saw that it clearly was not one system for its patients. With empirical evidence of NHS staff using WhatsApp (which is non compliant with NHS data regulations), he was passionate about delivering the right information to the right healthcare professional at the right time and to connect the world of health and social care.

As with any investment, investing in Medic Bleep carries a level of risk. Overall, based on the key risks highlighted below, the degree of risk associated with an investment in Medic Bleep is higher than in a company that's trading on a public market.
Medic Bleep is at one of the earliest stages of the business lifecycle, and the failure rate of companies at that stage is usually much higher than those at a later stage.
The number of transactions in shares of private companies is usually significantly lower than in public companies, typically resulting in it taking longer to sell shares in private companies at a price that is at least equal to the price that the shares were bought at. Accordingly, the Medic Bleep investment opportunity is considered to be higher risk than more liquid companies.
