CheckUp Health Press Release UK June

CheckUp Health. A new healthcare platform committed to providing quality, affordable virtual access to GPs and monitor health at home options in the UK.

Fungai Ndemera founded Zimbabwe’s first telemedicine practice in Jun 2016 on a strong commitment to making telemedicine and monitoring health at home a viable option for patients needing access to quick and affordable healthcare. With much thanks to the trust and support of their patients, services expanded to include one clinic based in Ruwa, Zimbabwe and the service has proudly treated over 25000 patients. It was through this experience that CheckUp Health was improved to a one-stop platform that streamlines access to telemedicine services, with no more waiting times and access to excellent healthcare whenever and wherever you need it. CheckUp Health provides urgent care services via a patient-facing Android or IOS App and the standard of care is to ensure patients are speaking with a staff member within minutes of registering. CheckUp Health also provides a specialist network referral service.

CheckUp Health has now launched its first digital practice in the UK. On a mission to make virtual healthcare conveniently, easily, and efficiently accessible to all patients in the UK. Given the recent challenges of Covid, shortage of doctors, and long wait times for appointments we provide an online service for telehealth at the patient’s convenience. Combining technology and healthcare we increase access to care and peace of mind. Using evidence-based medicine we ensure safe practice at a low cost. Providing patients with easily accessible service. CheckUp Health App also comes with FREE access to monitor health at home modules available to all including NHS patients. Thanks to Innovate Uk who funded our project that allowed for further development of monitor health at home modules.

“We realise one of the barriers to treatment and wellness for many of our patients is time and access to healthcare providers. As an online healthcare practice, CheckUp Health is able to make it easy for users to utilise its services by scheduling appointments when and where it’s most convenient for the patient,” Dr Serena Jones, Medical Director.
