About Healthera

Bringing Consumer Health into the Digital Era

Transforming a £25bn market with a consumer-first approach

Our mission

Our mission is to make medicine easily accessible for those who need it & to support hardworking healthcare professionals with new technology. 

Currently, only 5% of medicine is digital. Healthera is at the forefront of driving this percentage skywards.

Through revolutionising people’s everyday relationship with their health and by utilising the existing supply chain of local pharmacies (covering over 30 million people), we can transform a fragmented system into one that delivers on all fronts.  

By starting in the UK – partnering with the NHS – and with our first international launch coming in 2024, we strive to give patients everywhere an easy way to manage their personal health.

For patients, Healthera is 'simplicity'

  • An app and website where you can order NHS & private prescriptions, buy one-off medicines, and book health services from local pharmacies and doctors


  • A single platform for interacting with healthcare organisations and for managing medicine adherence


  • The first app in the UK to offer everything “health” in one place

For pharmacies & healthcare companies, Healthera is 'growth'

  • A platform to grow and future-proof your business as patients increasingly expect digital solutions – unlocking millions of people who want to order online


  • A single point of connectivity between a highly fragmented healthcare system, taking the hassle out of multi-party operations like prescription ordering


  • The easiest way to get an app, website, and more for a pharmacy that actually drives revenue

Our story

Healthera started out of Cambridge University in 2015, initially with a mission to make medicine adherence easier for patients (in other words: helping to remind people when to take their medication). 

3 engineering students developed a helpful app that was quickly taken up by local pharmacies and their patients.

Throughout this first local rollout, our founders spoke with dozens of pharmacies and hundreds of regular pharmacy users. They discovered that there was a far larger space for innovation than just providing medicine alarms. 

In 2017, Healthera refocused on streamlining the wider pharmacy journey…

Making prescription ordering fully digital and easy to track for both the patient and the pharmacy.

Over the years, our vision has grown to encompass simplifying more and more parts of the patient journey, but that initial mission has always remained the same: How can we make life easier for patients and healthcare companies?

Since those early days, we have grown our user and pharmacy base by a staggering amount and innovated in ways we’d never even considered possible. 

Today, we work with the NHS and the biggest private healthcare organisations in the UK to deliver the best experience on the market for people who need medicine. 

We can’t wait to see what the future holds.
