How Phlo Digital Pharmacy Started
Founder of Phlo
CEO of Phlo, Nadeem Sarwar, studied in the United States where he saw digital healthcare solutions that were well ahead of the UK. As someone who has directly experienced the frustrations and challenges that come along with getting regular prescription medication, Nadeem came home with a vision. This vision was to develop technology that would work with the NHS systems in the UK and give patients and their families more control over their healthcare. Nadeem noticed that the technological advances had not yet been embraced by pharmacies in the UK and patients were looking for a pharmacy which would fit around their schedules and not the opening hours of brick-and-mortar pharmacies.
Furthermore, the existing UK pharmacies did not provide the level of flexibility that is required in the increasingly fast-moving, time-strapped world we live in today. With these observations, a pharmacy delivery app was developed to meet this growing everyday need. Phlo allows patients to order, track and receive NHS prescriptions at a time and place which suits the patient.
Our team now consists of pharmacists, designers, marketers and developers who share Nadeem’s passion for developing and designing the most patient-centric pharmacy ever built in the UK.
