Glasgow healthtech start-up raises finance for prescription platform launch

Organised Health Technologies has secured investment worth £150,000 from a Scottish angel investor after raising £500,000 in bank finance last year. Having completed and won the MediCity DEVELOP programme as the Best Digital Health Company last November, Organised Health is now launching its real-time medication delivery system. The platform allows people to order their NHS prescriptions on the go and receive the medication at a time that fits around their day.

The funding will be used to take the app for the prescription delivery service to market and to grow the team, based in Glasgow’s Entrepreneurial Spark office. Nadeem Sarwar founder and chief executive, said: “We are building the pharmacy of the future – one that is suited to patient needs and using cutting edge digital technology and robotics to revolutionise the customer experience and improve efficiency within the NHS. The next 12 months are going to be an exciting time for the whole team”

The company is at ‘Engage Invest Exploit’ in Edinburgh this week, along with Scotland’s most promising startups, looking to secure further funding that will allow the infrastructure to be put in place to enable city by city scale-ability. The EIE17 programme and investor event attracts high level investors and business focused sponsors, including LINK Scotland and RBS.
