Co-op acquires online prescription platform Dimec

The Co-op has acquired healthcare technology start-up Dimec to enable it to enter the online pharmacy market.

Dimec has developed a digital platform that enables patients to pair with GP surgeries and pharmacies to make it easier for them to order their prescriptions.

As part of the transaction, Dimec’s founders will continute to work with the Co-op and a small number of new digital, operational and clincical jobs will be created in Manchester and at the Co-op’s distribition centre in Merseyside.

Tim Davies, director of Co-op Ventures, said: “The acquisition of Dimec allows us to accelerate the development of our healthcare proposition, and provides the technology required to ensure customers can interact with their NHS GP more conveniently.

“The clear focus for our Ventures team is to target markets where there are unmet customer needs and where our Co-op difference adds real value using innovative digital business models. The acquisition of Dimec is a core element in delivering this ambition and we’ll be providing more detail early next year in terms of our of wider customer offer.”
