Digital redbook app for parents to manage their child’s health secures £550K investment, including investment from Day Lewis Pharmacy
Nurturey, a child health app on a mission to become the first nationwide digital redbook, just got a step closer to making their mission a reality, thanks to a £550K investment that includes investment from the Owners and Directors of Day Lewis Plc, the UK’s largest independent pharmacy chain.
The Nurturey app is already being used successfully by thousands of pregnant mothers and parents of children aged 0 – 13 to record their child’s health information, milestones and receive trusted health guidance. Now, Team Nurturey plans to take digital empowerment of parents to the next level. It aims to complete integration with NHS systems soon, so that parents can access their children’s health information held by doctor, book immunisation appointments and be alerted in advance of their child’s important check-ups. Nurturey will truly be the digital redbook plus.
Sam Patel, Executive Director at Day Lewis, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Team Nurturey. As parents ourselves, we really connect with the digital redbook concept to make parents’ lives easier and to improve health outcomes for children. We’re thrilled to be part of Nurturey’s journey and look forward to seeing the positive impact Nurturey will have on the lives of children.”
Tushar Srivastava, Founder and CEO of Nurturey said: “We aim to address the wider challenge of falling vaccination rates, child obesity and other important child health issues in the UK. Nurturey algorithmically connects parents to trusted NHS information at the relevant stage of the child’s growth and empowers parents with digital tools to systematically manage all important health events and receive alerts.”
