Zoomdoc, the GP on demand service, has announced it will be appointing former Bupa Chief Information Officer (CIO), Garry Fingland, as Chairman.
Fingland brings deep expertise in leading digital and technology transformation on a global basis, most recently at Bupa and previously at Diageo and Serco. He is passionate about the opportunity to leverage digital technologies to improve access to health and care services, transforming the patient experience and delivering high quality advice and support at point of need. ZoomDoc provides a powerful platform to enable this goal, bringing together virtual telemedicine capabilities with the ability to arrange a GP home (or office) visit within an hour.
Following a successful fundraising campaign by ZoomDoc in late 2017, Fingland will now be working closely with founder and CEO Dr. Kenny Livingstone as the company expands its services across London and extends nationwide.
Dr. Kenny Livingstone, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Zoomdoc, said, “Garry’s wealth of experience makes him ideally suited for the role as we look to grow and strengthen Zoomdoc. The corporate market is of particular significance to us, and Garry’s experience from Bupa will be directly relevant to our business.”
Garry Fingland, Chairman of Zoomdoc, said, “Zoomdoc is an innovative and forward-thinking company and I’m looking forward to helping Kenny and the team work towards our goal of providing the best level of healthcare to patients, delivered to them in the most appropriate manner. Virtual healthcare can undoubtedly support many of the more routine medical consultations, however there is often no substitute for the presence of a highly experienced and qualified General Practitioner. ZoomDoc’s ability to offer this on demand, typically within an hour of the first call, provides a valuable addition to options available to individuals, parents and employers. This is an exciting time to be joining and I look forward to being a part of the company’s success.”
