I co-founded GP UK to solve the lack of accessible and responsive websites in the medical practice market.

Heading development, I designed a modular front end system that could adapt to fit the needs of our customers.

Due to the diversity of users accessing these sites for important information, it was key that the front end conformed to AA accessibility requirements and catered for as many browsers and devices as possible.

A purpose built content management system was created for practice managers and doctors to take control of their own content and keep their websites up to date. This was not possible for a lot of them before.

Running the business allowed me to grow my skill set outside of development by giving me hands on experience with sales, marketing, and customer relationships.

In 2021, NHS Scotland launched a free service that solved many of the problems we set out to solve. During its lifetime, the platform helped over 100,000 patients find important information, book appointments, and find appropriate services.
