Doctor Care Anywhere: Professor Nicholas Peters

Doctor Care Anywhere, the online primary care provider owned by Synergix Health, has appointed Professor Nicholas Paters (pictured) as chair of the Doctor Care Anywhere clinical advisory board.

Peters is currently Professor of cardiology and consultant cardiologist at Imperial College NHS Trust, he also sits on the board of DigitalHealth, London, is a co-founder of the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society, and is the only non-US member on the board of trustees and the digital health committee of the Heart Rhythm Society. Peters is further recognised for his role as clinical advisor to Google Health London and is a leading advocate for the benefits of smart technology in healthcare.

As chair of the clinical advisory board, Peters will provide guidance as the company enhances its online healthcare platform and will oversee the development and growth of Doctor Care Anywhere’s online GP training.

Commenting on the appointment, Bayju Thakar, founder and executive director of Doctor Care Anywhere, said: “We are delighted to announce Professor Peters’ appointment to chair of our clinical advisory board. Nick has unrivalled expertise in healthcare and technology and this experience will be invaluable as we continue to strengthen the clinical expertise behind our service.

“We are currently witnessing the growth of crippling financial and resource burdens on our healthcare systems, so it is essential that we find alternate means of allowing people to access the healthcare they need, when they need it. We look forward to working with Nick to ensure Doctor Care Anywhere not only continues to provide safe, clinically excellent healthcare but that our clinicians are best supported in adopting the new ways of working that virtual practice demands, while delivering the highest clinical standards possible.”

Professor Nicholas Peters, chair of the clinical advisory board, added: “I am thrilled to be working with Doctor Care Anywhere to enhance its position as a revolutionary provider of online healthcare. Despite how far it has already come, medical technology remains underutilised due to concerns that its ultimate aim is to replace human-to-human contact. But there will always be a place for the expertise of highly trained clinicians and online healthcare’s true value is not in replacing this vital contact between doctor and patient, but in improving access and enabling doctors to come up with more imaginative solutions to medical problems.

“This is an ethos shared with Doctor Care Anywhere’s founders and I look forward to working with a company so focused on increasing access to the knowledge and care that an excellent doctor can provide. My role, alongside Bayju and the board, will be to ensure that the highest standards of care are provided through Doctor Care Anywhere’s platform, enabling its virtual GPs to continue providing exemplary, accessible healthcare online.”
