Pilot is an online, healthcare platform that directly connects patients to doctors, through a sleek, secure and confidential digital interface.
The company was founded in 2019 by Benny Kleist, Charlie Gearside and Tim Doyle, partly due to their experiences observing the detrimental effects of mental ill-health in men they knew.
As such, mental health is one of the key areas that Pilot has sought to tackle head on. A whole section of the website is dedicated to ensuring that men can quickly connect to a mental health professional, while a separate section provides numerous useful guides on a range of topics from anxiety to addictions.
Other health issues that Pilot is tailored towards tackling include hair loss and sexual health, which are both issues that men are incredibly reluctant to seek help for due to stigma and embarrassment. As Kleist says, part of why they made Pilot was, “to show how common a lot of the issues we treat are – mental health, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, hair loss, sleep issues or sexual health – and how easy it can be to sort them out once a medical practitioner is involved.”
