Our Company

Echo is an exciting, cutting-edge tech organisation that has created a mobile app that allows people to manage their NHS repeat prescription orders online. Founded by patients, our mission is to simplify pharmacy and in doing so radically improve medical adherence. Half of all medicines aren’t taken as directed, which is a major burden on the NHS and patient health. Echo is solving this by using technology to make it easier for patients to get and take their medicine.

Founded in 2015, we’re a diverse, inclusive team of 200 people based in Perivale or working remotely, where we run one of England’s busiest pharmacies. Echo was VC backed, until the Summer of 2019, at which point we were acquired by McKesson UK, who we partner with, while remaining fiercely independent.

We are a passionate and friendly group of pharmacists, dispensers, fulfilment associates, engineers, developers, designers and everything in between, working towards the goal of making it easier for people to get and manage their medicine.
