About Messly

Our mission is to make it more fulfilling to be a doctor in the UK. We are building the UK’s comprehensive professional network for doctors, and in the process revolutionising medical training and recruitment within the NHS. The NHS is on it’s knees lurching from one workforce crisis to the next. We believe that the tools and services supporting the training and recruitment of NHS doctors isn’t fit for purpose.

What’s the solution?

We are the online home for all UK doctors – providing doctors with unified training resources and data, peer-peer connectivity and recruitment services across the whole of the NHS. We will provide the NHS with world-class digital infrastructure to directly engage with the medical workforce for temporary and permanent work, skipping the agencies and enabling game-changing financial savings.

Our story so far

We’re already delivering – over the last 18 months we’ve built a medical network of over 15,000 doctors and medical students. That’s 20% of the junior medical workforce. We’ve got 7 NHS Trusts using our recruitment services and are generating revenue.

Our team

We strongly believe a solid team is critical for success. So we’ve gone out and built a crack team of 12 clinicians, developers, designers, commercial experts and marketeers. Our founders are close-friends with significant medical and commercial experience. Our tech team are rockstar coders with incredible design flair. Supporting our troops are an advisory board made up of some of the most well-connected entrepreneurs and healthcare experts, who are helping to embed Messly within the healthcare ecosystem. We’ve been backed by all leading healthcare innovation hubs including DigitalHealth.London, NHS Clinical Entrepreneurs Programme and InnovateUK.

Our funding

We’ve raised over £1.1m to focus on building the best digital tools and services for our doctors and NHS. Quite simply we can more patient and long-term than anyone else in the market to realise our bold vision.
