Our story

It started in a run-down hospital in Euston

Founded by Jacob Haddad and Laurence Bargery in 2016, Accurx originally set out to tackle antimicrobial resistance. At the time, we were just a tiny team in a tiny, run-down office in a now-demolished hospital in Euston.

But after immersing ourselves in GP practices and shadowing frontline staff, we shifted our focus in 2018 to the everyday problems that healthcare staff face.

We discovered that these challenges all centred around one thing: communication. Whether speaking to a patient, coordinating care across services, making patient referrals or asking second opinions, healthcare staff spend countless hours communicating day to day.

So we set out on a mission to make healthcare staff happier and patients healthier.

Today, we connect millions of people

Through the COVID-19 pandemic, our software enabled video consultations and healthcare surveys for remote monitoring of patients with symptoms. We also built a vaccine booking system in just four weeks that was used to manage almost 30 million life-saving vaccinations.

Since then, our software has been used to message almost 50 million patients. We've also developed a unique online consultation solution across primary and secondary care, and the first nationally available patient-centred record sharing platform.

Creating a better-connected healthcare system

Accurx helps to create a more joined-up healthcare system, where everyone involved in a patient’s care can communicate with each other to deliver better care.

Today, over 98% of GPs in England use Accurx, and more and more healthcare professionals in secondary care and the community are choosing to use our software every day.
