LONDON, September 22, 2016

i-GP, the innovative virtual doctor service which treats over 25 minor illnesses and has treated thousands of patients in its inaugural year, is pleased to announce the addition of Mr Kulbinder Garcha as director of strategy and business development. Internationally renowned for his analysis on technology stocks, he joins the MedTech start up at an exciting time of further product development.

Kulbinder says, “Digital Healthcare is a dynamic market with the incredible potential to streamline patient access to care. I am delighted to be involved with i-GP which is the only provider of treatment for minor illnesses in the UK through an asynchronous process. The team are visionary in their approach and have produced a service which is redefining the online healthcare model.”

In addition to Kulbinder joining, i-GP have just released their 3D explainer video which perfectly describes the Si process – the name of their assessment tool which represents Swarm Intelligence – the next generation of diagnostic software.

i-GP has also launched its Wellness Philosophy. The free interactive programme advises on physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing with fortnightly posts to its registered users. Co-founder and Wellness lead Dr Aleesha Dhillon says of the service, “Health promotion has a vital role in the overall healthcare ecosystem of preventing disease and empowering patients through education to lead healthier lifestyles. Our philosophy combines all aspects of daily life from diet to mental health and is entwined with free upcoming programmes such as better sleep and a healthy heart.”

This virtual doctor service is further pushing the boundaries of online care by introducing the new interactive diagnosis selector and has recently been shortlisted for IT Provider of the Year in the national GP awards. Founder and CEO Dr Noorpuri says “At i-GP, we have produced a medical service which is entirely patient-centric: assessments operate 24/7 and treatment with private prescriptions is just £10. There are no time constraints as with conventional consultations, and if we are unable to treat you there is no charge but you are still offered free advice. Medication can be collected from any pharmacy usually within just 1 hour. We believe it is the future of healthcare delivery in the UK.”
