Push Doctor invests £3m in office expansion

Push Doctor has invested over £3m to expand its offices in Manchester as it continues to grow its staff.

The online GP provider, which entered the digital healthcare market in 2014, says it has grown its company from four employees in 2016 to 118 today and is expecting staff levels to reach 170 by the end of the year.

The move to the 15,000sqft offices in the Grade-II Arkwright House in the city, will see a third of the space dedicated to a ‘digital health campus’ designed to connect stakeholders, businesses and start-ups from the healthcare and technology world, it said.

The move comes after the company raised $26m in an investment round last year.

Eren Ozagir, founder and chief executive of the company, said: ‘We believe that opening this dedicated campus in Manchester will enable us to pull together the expertise needed to collectively answer the questions which will make a real difference to health, and ensure we can deliver our own mission to help people live happier, healthier lives.

‘The creation of this new space also represents continued investment in our own team. We’ll continue to at look at building that team even further by hiring another 60 employees with a range of talents by the end of 2018.’
