Perwyn leads £20m Patchwork Health series B funding round

Patchwork Health, a healthcare workforce platform built by NHS doctors, has raised £20 million in a series B funding round led by Perwyn. Praetura Ventures and KHP Ventures also participated along with a number of prominent angel investors, including Monzo founder Tom Blomfield and Social Chain co-founder Dominic McGregor.

Founded in 2016 by NHS medics Dr Anas Nader and Dr Jing Ouyang, Patchwork partners with over 100 healthcare sites across the UK. Their technology and services aim to transform healthcare staffing.

This investment comes at an important time: nearly half of NHS staff have reported feeling unwell as a result of work related stress in the last 12 months and 1 in 5 have said they are likely to leave their organisation in the next year. This staffing crunch is occurring against the backdrop of record waiting lists, with 6.6m people waiting to start treatment. 

Patchwork provides tech-powered solutions that address staffing challenges and allow NHS teams to manage their permanent and temporary workforce through one fully-integrated platform.
