Our History

A true pioneer in practice management systems.

Up until 1980, Microtest was mainly involved in developing test equipment for the microwave industry, hence the company’s name.

Microtest was also a supplier of BBC Microcomputers, which some GP surgeries were using to help run their practices. This lead to a relationship with G+G Software, who had created an early form of practice management system to run on these computers. Eventually, Microtest and G+G Software merged so as to focus on practice management systems and the microwave business was floated off. The newly merged company, still called Microtest, quickly became a leading pioneer and innovator in medical software.

Through the 1990s, Microtest continued to develop and improve its practice management system, gaining a large customer base across the UK, as well as some overseas practices. The next step was to develop a Windows-based version of its practice management system. After, years of extensive testing and accreditation, Microtest Evolution was launched in 2005.

Microtest has gone on to become a national leader in clinical software, with a reputation for innovative, state of the art healthcare technology. Mictotest has successfully expanded its core suite of medical software products, with the addition of the award-winning Guru and Planned.Care. Microtest was named winner of the IT Provider category in the national GP Awards 2017-18.

Microtest’s success is based on 30 years’ experience of listening closely to the needs of our NHS customers and responding with ground-breaking solutions in clinical software.
