Nicholas is currently Professor of Cardiology and Consultant Cardiologist at Imperial College NHS Trust. He is also Clinical Advisor to Google Health London and a leading advocate for the benefits of smart technology in healthcare. He brings his medical eminence and technological expertise to Doctor Care Anywhere and will provide expert guidance as the company enhances its online healthcare platform.
“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,” said Bayju Thakar, Founder and Executive Director. “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 Peters said: “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.”
