Doctors.net.uk, a physician network in the United Kingdom, has been acquired by M3 USA, an international healthcare company that own physician communities across Japan, Korea, USA and Germany.

DNUK currently has 180,000 UK physician members and operates as a professional web portal and email service for physicians in the UK, while providing digital promotion and market research services to the life science industry.

On top of its recent acquisition, M3 USA purchased London based EMS Research in November. According to a statement the two deals will strengthen M3’s reach into the European Union in terms of physician access, pharmaceutical product promotion, and market research.

‘The addition of doctors.net.uk is a powerful expansion of our commitment to providing the pharmaceutical industry full global access,’ says M3 USA chief executive officer Aki Tomaru.

‘Concurrent with our investment in the growth of MDLinx.com to service the US pharmaceutical market, this acquisition allows us to dramatically extend our services to physicians and pharmaceutical companies into the UK.’

The demand for pharmaceutical digital marketing services in the UK market is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years and this acquisition will place M3 at the leading position to benefit from the growth. This acquisition will also be a nice stepping stone for M3 to expand into the countries in the European Union,” continued Tomaru.
