babylon is the U.K’s leading digital healthcare service. Our purpose is to democratise healthcare by putting an accessible and affordable health service into the hands of every person on earth. In order to achieve this babylon has brought together one of the largest teams of scientists, clinicians, mathematicians and engineers to focus on combining the ever growing computing power of machines with the best medical expertise of humans to create a comprehensive, immediate and personalised health service and make it universally available.
Regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), babylon offers users a personal health service by providing immediate access to General Medical Council (GMC) registered doctors and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registered therapists.
Founded in January 2013 and launched to the public in April 2014, the service now covers over 800,000 people globally, with local services operating out of the U.K, Ireland and recently launched for East Africa in Rwanda. A number of leading health insurance providers, including Bupa and Aviva, plus over 120 other companies have also partnered with babylon to offer its services to their employees as part of their benefits packages.
