DocPlanner, which lets you book an appointment with a doctor online, has raised €15 million (£13 million) in a Series D round led by London’s One Peak Partners, and existing investors Target Global and Enern Investments.
The round brings DocPlanner’s total funding to €46 million (£40 million).
DocPlanner will use its new funding to expand into Latin America, add new software for doctors, and do more sales and marketing. The startup will open new offices in Brazil and Mexico.
The startup was founded in 2012 in Poland by Mariusz Gralewski, who previously build GoldenLine.pl, a Polish rival to LinkedIn. DocPlanner lets you search for a doctor by specialism — type “acne”, for example, and the site will show you dermatologists. In the UK, DocPlanner only seems to show private doctors.
DocPlanner merged with a Spanish-owned rival called Doctoralia last year, and operates in the UK under that name. Doctoralia was kicked off an NHS list of approved third-party apps in 2015, after a privacy campaign group complained about inaccurately listed information.
Most of DocPlanner’s customers are in southern Europe, the company said. It isn’t clear how many British customers the startup has, given most people use the NHS rather than private services. The startup claims 340,000 bookings per month, and 20 million patients signed up to its platform.
Gralewski, founder and CEO of DocPlanner, said: “We continue the process of integrating the DocPlanner and Doctoralia teams and have already developed a very coherent and well-functioning organisation with a common mission and strategy.
“We have been able to take the best practices and capabilities from each business to create something that is way beyond the sum of its parts.”
