Evergreen Life buys creators of online consultation system askmyGP

Online GP booking service provider Evergreen Life has acquired Salvie, the creators of online consultation and workflow system askmyGP for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition will see Evergreen Life expanding its primary care services to include online consultations, secure video and messaging.

Evergreen Life has been around since 2015. Account fillings for 2020 have its revenue at roughly £844,000 and as of October 2020, the company had more than 800,000 users.

askmyGP has been helping GPs manage workload since 2011.

The companies will work together to help GPs, clinical commissioning groups, primary care networks, and health boards to manage caseloads and strengthen relationships with patients.

Harry Longman, founder and chief executive of askmyGP said: “askmyGP enables over 200 GP practices around the UK to manage their workflow and respond to patient demand with outstanding service, resolving 79% of requests on the same day.

“Patients will benefit from a wider range of services and communications with their GP, and through the Evergreen Life app will be able to take better control of their own health. Providers will benefit initially from integration with clinical systems across the full range of patient-facing services and better communications with patients through the app. As our products and services develop, they also gain from people taking control of their health, wellbeing, and medical records.”

Mark Hindle, chief operating officer of Evergreen Life added: “By working together and through the new Evergreen Connect platform, we can join up more areas of the health and care system as part of our mission to deliver people powered health.”
