A note from our new CEO

Hello! My name is Maddy, and I’m the new CEO of Microtest.

I’m excited to be joining a business with a long, proud history of innovation at a moment when innovation is needed more than ever. In 2020, healthcare delivery in the UK is changing at the fastest pace probably since the inception of the NHS in 1948. Microtest can play an important role in supporting new ways of delivering care in the community.

This business has reinvented itself before to meet the change needs of its customers over the past 30 years, and together we will do so again now to be a health tech leader again in the 2020s.

The Waiting Room 2 is the latest version of Microtest’s highly successful module, which allows patients to book their own appointments at published clinics, without any interaction from practice staff.

This state of the art clinic management software brings significant benefits for patients and surgeries, while also helping you to meet NHS requirements for greater patient access to services.

We have integrations with over 50 partners currently available or under development, each of which provide innovative clinical software functions that can improve your entire practice management system.
