Cranworth Medical was founded in 2009 by two practising doctors. We became frustrated that despite the powerful smartphones in our pockets, we still had to transport multiple printed materials or rely on websites to access guidelines and reference material. Our solution to these problems began with the release of our first product ‘MCQs for MRCP’ on the Apple App Store in 2010. Since then we have continued to expand our range of MCQ apps and, through collaboration with NHS Trusts, Royal Colleges and charities, we have developed innovative solutions to some of healthcare’s most frustrating problems.
Cranworth Medical succeeds through its pairing of clinical experience with technical proficiency. All stages of product development from initial conception through to final stages of coding are performed or managed by practising UK doctors. This places us in the unique position of being both developer and end-user of the products we design.
